Standup World Tour – La Torche Grand Slam 2012

Period: Apr 28 - May 6, 2012
Location: La Torche, France

The second stop of the Standup World Tour is La Torche, France. Here, some of the best SUP surfers in the world will battle for the title and for winning crucial points in the 2012 World Title Race. La Torche is considered one of the best SUP spots in Europe. It is located on the Northwest coast of France, in Brittany, and it offers perfect waves and wind.

The La Torche Grand Slam was won by Kai Lenny last year and he will surely want to defend his title this year. The French SUP legend Antoine Delpero will also compete for the title, after winning the Naish La Torche Pro back in 2010. Other spectacular riders to compete in the 2012 event include Benoit Carpentier from Brittany, Greg Closier also from France, Casper Steinfath from Denmark, Leco Salazar from Brazil and many others.

The La Torche Grand Slam takes place between the 28th of April and 6th of May. Entries for the event are open. To register, please send a mail to or visit the Standup World Tour website.
