Hi! I’m Claudio Duran and born in Coronel, a little city on the Chilean coast, where my passion for water started. I’m an engineer in industrial maintance by profession and passionate for SUP and for all types of water adventures on sea.
In 2015, I started to become familiar with SUP and began to explore different places, while paddling in Chilean lakes- and ocean and started to compete in tournaments. Currently, I’m living in Haarlem with my family and established my company SportandTours in the Netherlands, which gives me the opportunity to be continiously connected with SUP. I train almost every single day to improve my results and to become better and better.
Furthermore, one of the reasons to be in the Netherlands is also because of the SUP competitions, which are organized here in Europe, like the Eurotour SUP and the SUP 11 City Tour, where I participated in the 2019 and 2020 edition. Looking forward to represent Chile for Mistral and to be part of this great team.
