"The Majorero riders dominate the Spanish SUP Beach Race championship and the Fuerteventura SUP Challenge "

The local rider from the municipality of La Oliva, Sonni Hönscheid, got brilliant results last month during the Fuerteventura SUP Challenge by achieving the best times, both for masculine and feminine categories, amongst the 63 participants who completed the 12-kilometre course between Corralejo and the islet of Lobos. Also, for the Spanish Beach Race championship in Majanicho, the top steps of the podium went to the Majoreros Jaran Rodríguez and Esperanza Barrera. The achievement of Hönscheid is even more remarkable considering that this long distance contest took place in the open category with international participants and together with the Spanish Cup of Stand Up Paddle Surf where the best in the national circuit came to compete. The Majorera accumulated six victories this year and two second places on the professional SUP RACE world circuit. The Fuerteventura SUP Challenge Cup of Spain of SUP RACE took place between the Bay of Corralejo and the islet of Lobos. Fuerteventura, therefore, became the national capital of SUP in December as the Spanish championships of SUP Waves and Beach Race also took place in Majanicho. Majanicho hosted a great show with the Beach Race event where the local riders Jaran Rodríguez, in the Elite 14 feet category and Esperanza Barrera in the Elite 12,6 feet category got to the highest steps of the podium.
