Supconnect Man of the Year Contest

Congrats Georges on placing 2nd in the Supconnect Man of the Year 2013! Georges Cronsteadt “THE TAHITIAN BEAST” Finished 2nd in the voting for SUPCONNECT MAN OF THE YEAR. The voting was done by a very large global community of stand up paddlers and SUP enthusiasts.

"One of the great gentlemen of SUP, Georges Cronsteadt is from Mataiea (South west Coast of Tahiti).  As a 33 year old man he is on top of his game and has so many titles from a variety of paddling and other sports to his name that it's just not possible to list them all.  In SUP, however, he recently won the Ta-Hoe Nalu distance race and elite elimination rounds. He also won the technical course at the Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge."-supconnect
