DESTINATION HAMBURG GERMANY
Hamburg is a city built on water. A diverse mix of rivers, lakes, and more canals and bridges than Venice means this unassuming SUP paradise has a wide range of easily accessible urban, suburban, and tidal adventures waiting for you to come and discover.
EXPLORE SRI LANKA
Once considered an off-the-beaten-path adventure destination, Sri Lanka is increasingly making a name for itself as a SUP and surf destination. Photographer Laurent Nevarez returns to Sri Lanka after an eight-year hiatus with BIC Sport athlete Alexis Deniel to find there is still plenty left to discover.
