SUP racers can enter a race nearly every week in a year. There are scores of races happening around the world all year ’round, so it won’t be hard to find an event. The first two "events" links below list over 70 races worldwide, These sites are only two of many offering schedules, results, and video.
Racing can be serious, or serious fun, attracting SUPers from novice to enthusiast to high performance athlete, kids to seniors. Racing is a fast-growing part of the flat water stand up paddle boarding discipline, which in itself is the most popular SUP style—and enthusiasm for racing is a big part of that. This is the area of greatest innovation for all performance boards, so clearly manufacturers are picking up on the buzz.
