Naish Swarms The Emirates Palace

Naish Swarms The Emirates Palace

The inaugural Emirates Palace Beach Festival made its debut on March 21, 2014 at the picturesque Emirates Palace Marina in the UAE. Weather was a steamy 95 degrees Fahrenheit with light onshore winds, but that didn’t stop families and competitors alike from lining up to experience a wide variety of stand up paddling events for kids, juniors and adults.

There was surely an event for everyone, from the 1km to 6km Distance races to the Mini SUP Triathlon, smiles were ear to ear all day long! Naish International team rider, Jen Scully, rang in the event with the win in the Women’s 6K race & the SUP Triathlon on her Naish Javelin 12’6” LE while Naish continued to make its way across the finish line in a plethora of other events. Way to go Jen!

Cheers to a wonderful event and all those that participated!
