Danny Ching and Annabel Anderson Claim the Carolina Cup Titles

The Carolina Cup is the first event on the newly formed SUP Champions Tour agenda and one of the toughest and most challenging events in the US. It gathers experienced riders from all over the world that need to fight through difficult conditions on the 13-mile open ocean course.

In the Men’s division, Danny Ching had to battle Jamie Mitchell and Georges Cronsteadt. He was able to slowly reel them in the choppy side wind, beating them and claiming the title.

In the Women’s division, Annabel Anderson dominated the race. Although Jenny Kalmback and Lina Augaitis put on a serious fight, Annabel managed to cross the finish line in front of them.
