In this week's value-added-episode, we've got two interviews for you, as we feature Veronique Musumeci talking about Belgium as a stand up paddle destination, and Chris MacDonald who tells us about his epic SUP journey covering the 55 miles of sea between Mallorca and Ibiza, two of the Balearic Islands.
Veronique appears across the media in Belgium talking about SUP, and runs the website SUP and See: https://supandsee.sharetribe.com/
Her website has contributors and locations from across the world, but really worth bookmarking if you're planning a trip to paddle in Europe anytime soon.
