SUP has been a big part of our lives for the last nine years, with Sarah racing and Antony being her great supporter.
Following Sarah’s win at the Ladies 14’ National Series 2017, we were asked to be on the Events Team for the newly formed GBSUP National Series. At the first race, Mark Price included Sarah in the Live Feed commentary and once she grabbed the mic for some interviews, she wouldn't let go.
The idea of the Live Feed is to connect the public with the event and to make it feel inclusive to those watching. This was really well received and we then realised just how important this was to connect racers with family and friends who could not be there. Due to it’s success, we were then asked to interview some of the competitors at the GBSUP National Series and UKN1SCO races and have continued this at other events since then, notably the APP World Tour in London.
This has proved hugely popular in showing the passion of all those interviewed, be they racers, photographers or volunteers, for the sport that they are involved in. Through the interviews we have been able to inspire even the most inexperienced beginner to participate in SUP racing.
