Janni in the Maldives August 2016


Janni scores some more perfection in the Maldives.......

"This wave was originated by a storm somewhere out in the ocean... it travelled for miles and miles to meet the Maldives, to hug the reef & kiss the coastline. Me, I also travelled from very far, to see this beautiful phenomenon happen, to ride these waters for a few short seconds, to give myself to this moment, let my passion drive me on this empty canvas, and steal a little piece of it's energy which I will take with me on my journey... to keep hold of it for when I need it, to let go of it when somebody else needs it, or to simply set it free to express itself through my being... into a piece of art, into a painting, a conversation, into a dance, perhaps into love...or maybe just into a smile. And so, this energy travels on. Once a storm, now peace. What a wonderful renevouz of life" 💫 || pic by @richard_kotch

Sonni wins 5 major Sup contests in a row , April, May 2016

After winning the 2 downwind races in Maui (Olukai and Imua) Sonnis sponsor Sic Maui put following text on their blog:

PFOFELD, Germany - Taking home another 1st place podium at The Lost Mills International SUP race in Germany over the weekend, SIC Maui Global Team Athlete Sonni Hönscheidis dominating any race she enters this season. The Reigning Euro Tour champion Hönscheid entered The Euro Tour week 2 with a victory in Port Adriano, Spain on Mallorca finishing with a time of 1:01:15 just behind the men's top 10. Since Mallorca, Hönscheid has been on the road in her Mercedes V-Class van hitting every stop in The Euro Tour, grabbing 1st place podium spots at each race.

"I am really lucky to be a brand ambassador for Mercedes, having such a great ride makes travelling through Europe so easy and enjoyable. The first tourstop was in Mallorca, really challenging conditions, but that is exactly what I like. I used my X-14.0 Pro-Lite, for being a true flatwater board, it works well in those conditions.""The next stop was Saint Maxime - more athletes arrived increasing the level of competition even more. This race was a time combination of technical race & long distance races. I was able to win both of those races, taking first place. After that, we switched the baguette for Weisswurst  leaving to the Brombachsee in the heart of Bavaria."

Hönscheid finished on top of the podium at Saint Maxime on the French Riviera with a time of  46:06 and 1:40:58 totaling 2:27:04 for the win.

"The Lost Mills is one of the biggest races in Europe, amazing location, pure flatwater... I knew this race was going to a mental challenge because there is a lot of drafting involved, definitely not my favorite. But I was able to get rid of the crowds and paddle my own race, arriving to the finish line by almost 2 minutes before the 2nd place finisher."

Hönscheid completed The Lost Mills International SUP Race with a clocked time of 2:02:11 over second place finisher Seychelle Hattingh.

"My biggest reward was the surprise visit from my granny & of course a cold Erdinger beer," Hönscheid said smiling.

VIDEO CLIP - 32 MILES / THE CHANNEL OF BONES: SONNI HÖNSCHEID'S PADDLEBOARD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WIN

Ever since her first downwind paddle off Maui's famed North Shore, Sonni wanted to compete in and win the Molokai to Oahu (M2O) world championships. They say you should "never give up on your dreams," and Sonni Hönscheid never did.

She's been training hard and waiting patiently for this moment. Commitment, drive and her incredible talent made it happen on Sunday, July 27th 2014 when she crossed the line first and was crowned the 2014 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Champion.

 

 


29.July 2014

Sensational win for Sonni!!!!!

She did it! Congratulations to Sonni Hönscheid on her Molokai2Oahu win!

 

Sonni's passion for oceansports has no limits and her dedication and endurance have paid off by winning the biggest prize in paddlesports. Crossing the Channel of Bones is a feat in itself. Winning is, well, something that gets you in the hall of fame for paddlesports. Sonni, your Bluesmiths 'Ohana is extremely proud to celebrate this accomplishment with you! It's well deserved.

 

We’d like to extend our congratulations to ALL the riders in the race. This is a brutal open ocean paddle race and anything can happen. It really can. Every finisher, whether solo or team, whether prone or SUP, should be congratulated for making it to Oahu. It's a real privilege to be part of this race. Aloha, Bluesmiths / JS


RobieRobes in our north shore shop fuerteventura

26.July 2014

Robie Robes- we got them in our shop!

Robie Robes was the brainchild of Martyn and Tamsin Tarplee who both grew up on the beaches of West Cornwall, surfing, sailing, diving, swimming and rowing. With the rapid growth in ocean sports and with wetsuit technology enabling whole families to stay in the sea all year around it seemed ridiculous that people were struggling to change in just a towel.

In the Autumn of 2007, they designed a robe that would take the hassle out of changing whilst keeping them warm, dry and covered. Since then they have not looked back and the Robie Robe has become a kit bag essential for all those who love the water and the great outdoors.

Being the original Robie, they are sure that with the combination of high quality material and a tried, tested and approved design you will not be disappointed. The cotton is soft and comfortable, and the design loose fitting to ensure that you can dry your whole body, face and hair. The arm holes on the sides are wide enough to enable you to reach for clothes and give ease of movement whilst changing. The length allows you to dry your feet aswell as covering your whole body.

The original changing robe from Robie Robes. Imitated but never bettered, it’s the cosy, comfortable way to get changed.
