This new start is not only about racing, but we also have some really exciting art projects coming along that will make the sport of SUP even more colorful.

in port adriano, powered by Mercedes with my art design on. On the water racing the SIC X-14.0 Pro-Lite. This board is 24.0”/61.0cm wide. The bottom cross sections allow the racer to get up to top speed quicker and stay at your top speed longer with less effort. The piercing bow design and missile like outline mean the board will continue to accelerate the harder you stroke. The new X-14.0 Pro-Lite is designed to put Elite racer ahead of the pack and on top of the podium: http://bit.ly/sic-x14prolite        read more here>>>>>>>>>>

new painting "Mana"

150x60cm Art by Sonni Hönscheid / Words by Janni Hönscheid @jannihonscheid ❤ "while the world around her was starting to crumble and turn into grey, in a moment of desesperation, she took a breath and raised her arms up to the sky... sunlight shone through her, an energy so pure, her roots were the ocean, wind in her hair, flowers on her bare chest, passion in her eyes... she caught life in her body and she brought color to the world. It was the moment that the world changed. One beating heart. One smile. One feeling. One girls dream. Your arms in the sky. Awake. And the world will never be the same again. "

Racing update: 3rd place in World series Northshore Oahu

Great weekend in California at the Pacific Paddle Games. Amazing conditions & really high level. It was really nice to be part of this event. Couldn't give a 100% (souvenir from freezing Germany - a cold) but I definitely had fun surfing some nice waves and trying to manage that challenging race course through the waves and still managed to get a fifth place in den Surf Race.

The next weekend I could improve to a 3rd place overall in the world series on the northshore , Oahu

Thank you Supthemag "Sonni Hönscheid had a major breakthrough win with her victory at M20 this year, setting the third-fastest women’s time across the Ka’iwi Channel. Winning what is often called the hardest paddle race in the world is no easy feat. Hönscheid earned the Female Performance of the Year at the 2014 SUP Awards for her victory.

Bonus Performance: Hönscheid won the 17-mile downwind Na Pali Race on Kauai.”

I´m really honored and happy to be in the top 10 performances of the year!! Thank you to my family, friends and sponsors for the support!! like Mark Raaphorst says "Teamwork makes the dream work”

My interpretation of the the Logo "Corazon Loco" (wine from the bodega of the famous spanish national football player Iniesta

Corazon Loco

¡VIVA EL VINO Y EL ARTE!

Nos encanta la forma en la que se relaciona el arte con el mundo del vino. Desde siempre son muchos los artistas que, cautivados por el vino, desarrollan obras con un toque muy especial. La imagen que os mostramos hoy la ha realizado Sonni Hönscheid, una fan de nuestra Bodega que tiene mucho talento y conoce muy bien nuestros vinos.

 

Sonni probó nuestros vinos porque le gustó nuestra imagen juvenil y desenfada. A raíz de probarlos, se ha convertido en una clienta habitual de nuestra tienda online, y nos ha regalado esta imagen de nuestro logo con esa visión tan colorida y personal. Como sabréis, todos nuestros vinos de Corazón Loco tienen en la etiqueta un corazón, que se reproduce desde el interior hasta el exterior a partir de 5 pequeños corazones.

 

Como nos ha gustado tanto el detalle que ha tenido Sonni y deseamos compartirlo, vamos a crear una galería para mostrar todas las variantes de nuestros logos que nos envíen nuestros seguidores para disfrute de todos. ¿Os gusta la idea?

 

No lo dejéis más, enviadnos vuestras fotos o diseños relacionados con Bodega Iniesta a info@bodegainiesta.com y participad en nuestra comunidad.

VIDEO CLIP - 32 MILES / THE CHANNEL OF BONES: SONNI HÖNSCHEID'S PADDLEBOARD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WIN

Ever since her first downwind paddle off Maui's famed North Shore, Sonni wanted to compete in and win the Molokai to Oahu (M2O) world championships. They say you should "never give up on your dreams," and Sonni Hönscheid never did.

She's been training hard and waiting patiently for this moment. Commitment, drive and her incredible talent made it happen on Sunday, July 27th 2014 when she crossed the line first and was crowned the 2014 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Champion.

Sonni wins the "Na Pali Race" on Kauai

Sonni wins the "Na Pali Race" on Kauai

Here are the early results from the 2014 Na Pali Paddleboard Race, which is held on perhaps the most beautiful race course in the world: Kauai’s Na Pali Coast.

 

After his podium finish in the stock class at Molokai last weekend, Andrew Logreco backed up with the overall line honours today. Coming home second was Kiwi Armie Armstrong, who has been supremely impressive in Hawaii the past few weeks. Thomas Maximus came home third while fourth was Sonni Hönscheid; the German showing her Molokai win was no fluke by defeating not only all the women but almost all of the men as well.

 

Apparently the first 4 or 5 miles of the race offered up a great downwinder, as competitors paddled along the world famous cliffs and mountains of Kauai’s north west coast. However it sounds like the second half of the race turned into a grinding headwinder…

Sonni at the finish line

Sonni's passion for oceansports has no limits and her dedication and endurance have paid off by winning the biggest prize in paddlesports. Crossing the Channel of Bones is a feat in itself. Winning is, well, something that gets you in the hall of fame for paddlesports. Sonni, your Bluesmiths 'Ohana is extremely proud to celebrate this accomplishment with you! It's well deserved.

 We’d like to extend our congratulations to ALL the riders in the race. This is a brutal open ocean paddle race and anything can happen. It really can. Every finisher, whether solo or team, whether prone or SUP, should be congratulated for making it to Oahu. It's a real privilege to be part of this race. Aloha, Bluesmiths / JS

Sonni and her boat team

The team is super important in choosing the best course and motivating the rider.
