International Surf and SUP brand NSP announced last week the signing of three new young high-profile names to their SUP Race team.
In addition to superstar athletes Laura Quetglas, Titouan Puyo and Ty Judson (we’re still hoping Travis Grant to make a comeback to the racing scene after an early retirement from international competition in 2019), NSP is eager to strengthen its position as one of dominating brands in competitive paddleboarding in 2023.
Here are the new members of the NSP Team:
BODIE VON ALLMEN – USA
Bodie Von Allmen came to SUP racing at an early age, competing at the PPG – Pacific Paddle Games when he was just 10 years old! In 2022, Bodie was the youngest paddler on the APP World Tour.
Bodie lives in Lake Oswego, USA, embracing the waterman lifestyle with a daily paddle and a never-ending fascination for board sports, environmentalism, and the science of endurance training.
Duna made a similar mark on the racing scene in Europe, racking up a range of 1st and 2nd places in some of the most important events on the Calendar. Starting at the tender age of 9, Duna has been coached by another NSP rider, Laura Quetglas for ten years now, has competed in Stand-Up Paddleboarding for as many years, and continues to improve and refine her techniques and performance.
Following a 2021 season winning several world titles in her last Junior division year, Duna stunned the SUP World in 2022 winning already her 1st World Title in the Women’s open division in Long Distance at the ISA World SUP & Paddleboard Championship in Puerto Rico.
Living on one of the prettiest beaches on Mallorca, one of the Spanish Balearic islands, Duna has a spacious training facility in her backyard, serving up daily conditions.
Klitmøller isn’t just named “Cold Hawaii” for nothing; the little Danish town on the West Coast of Denmark is very deserving of its nickname as numerous athletes call this small fishing village their home. Introduced to the sport by fellow villager and 6x World Champion Casper Steinfath, Christian was no different, excelling at sports, including skateboarding and surfing, from a young age onwards.
Like Duna and Bodie, Stand Up Paddling made an appearance at the ten-year mark, and Christian “Polar Bear” Andersen has been a rising force in SUP racing ever since.
Soft-spoken on land, Christian is a ruthless competitor on the water. “I am extremely excited to join the NSP Family and work alongside legends like T2 and Travis.”
Last year NSP SUP Racers had a big impact on the Technical and Sprint SUP Race scene with their new Cheetah board. NSP Superstar Christian Andersen was part of the design team that took the idea for this new SUP Race board from concept to the water and now he takes us at TotalSUP through that […]
At the 2023 ICF World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand a young Italian paddler stunned the world with her two gold medals, Claudia Postiglione. Now this young rising star has joined the NSP SUP Race Team and TotalSUP has the first interview with this talented paddler. Ciao Claudia, benvenuta su TotalSUP! Grazie Chris! I want to […]
The recent ICF World Championships in Thailand was probably the biggest SUP racing event of 2023, with more paddlers taking part in more race categories than ever before. One of the largest fields was for the junior racers with around 70 young men lining up to test themselves against the world’s best. One of those […]
Balancing a family, career and a love of the water is tricky for most paddlers and even more so for those who want to compete at a high level. Taking on that challenge, and more is NSP SUP racer, parent and Doctor, Susanne Eder-Meyer. Susanne patiently waited for Chris from TotalSUP to catch up with her […]
The adventures of Team Spain through EUROSUP 2023, the European SUP Championships organized in Peniche, Portugal last week, could not have ended on a better note for the national team.
