An evening SUP race on the lake at Assenza, near Brenzone was set up by one of the nearby beach centres. The men and women raced a heat and a finals around the island of Trimelone.

Our instructor Jaz took on the locals in a SUP race

Following on from a previous week's men's SUP race, this was a women's race with two heats of 10 and a final of 10 with a course around the island of Trimelone.

Jaz surpassed our expectation (but maybe not hers) by proceeding to the final in second in her heat and then winning the final in a close finish that I couldn't photograph because it was dark.

Tremendous paddling by Jaz, I'll not be suggesting a race against her. Our Red Paddle SUPs can be hired by the hour and are perfect for newcomers to the sport  (we also provide lessons) or just those wanting fun on the water.

Two of our instructors demonstrate the art of windsurf tandem. Note the coordination required when turning the board around. Great sailing from Jaz and Stella.

Great skills from Jaz (at the back) and Stella (at the front). Its a really difficult board to begin with but absolutely flies when you get it right, as well as leaping over waves like a breaching whale!

The tandem requires two good sailors as they have to coordinate their movement and be able to adjust sail power together. The pictures show the level of effort required but not the skill being demonstrated - come and have a go if you don't believe us!

This and many other boards are available from our beach and some of the rental range can be seen here.
