SUP Events: what's happening!

It wasn’t long after the advent of stand up paddle boarding that SUP events emerged, and they’ve been growing in number and caliber ever since. According to "SUP the mag", there’s an event somewhere in the world almost every week of the year. As stand up paddle boarding gains converts—thanks to the simplicity and accessibility of the sport—it stands to reason that these events should grow up around it, bringing people together to learn, compete, watch the action and have fun.

Racing events, paddle fests, downwinder events, freestyle competitions, kids’ events, fishing derbies, yoga events, expedition events, expos, clinics, swaps and hundreds of demos make up the exciting range of events. The rapid rise in popularity of SUP competition has led to increasing innovation in SUP equipment, which continues to enhance levels of speed and skill.

Attend a SUP event - get in some SUP networking

Events are great for social networking, making it easy to connect with others who share your passion. Checking out a SUP festival or competition is a great way to decide if this is a sport for you (warning: the energy and excitement can be contagious). Many events offer workshops and other learning platforms alongside competitive events and demos.
