About SUP Race
The elite race will begin with water start out through the surf and around the starting buoy. Depending on conditions for the day, the course will either test the participant's balance and speed through the river inlet or put participants head to head in a technical Battle of Paddle style course with buoy turns in and out of the surf with beach runs in between. Depending on the number of competitors entered, this course may be run in heats of 4-5 racers at a time. Racers will finish on the beach as well and must have their paddle in hand to qualify. The event will be spectator friendly and will be a joy to observe as athletes have their skills put to the test. Athletes will be competing for the ISF SUP Cup title.
The recreational race will begin approximately 30 minutes after the elite racers finish. This race will also consist of a beach start and finish but will run in the calm waters of the river adjacent to Lotus Resort. Paddlers will sprint across flat waters to strategically place buoys, make the turns, and return to the beach where they must finish with a paddle in hand. Depending on the number of competitors entered, this course may be run in heats of 4-5 racers at a time.
Assemble your best team! The sprint-relay race will begin after the recreational racers have had some time to rest. Teams of 4-5 will perform a relay-style race with a maximum of two elite racers. The overall team that wins will hold the ISF SUP Cup team title.
All important rules will be covered in the racers meeting before race start.
Please contact the ISF team for race information & rules.
