Canadian SUP Events – What’s in store for 2016?

2016 will be an exciting year with several new events being added to the calendar and the BC SUP CUP Series will now take place at established events. The sport is so diverse, all types of races are being added to the calendar – And we expect River and SUP Surf events to help re-stoke those who have already dipped into the flatwater racing scene.

The BC SUP CUP Series will help promote the sport in the province and allow athletes to develop their performance at a higher level.  The series is open to all paddlers with the goal of keeping the roots of the sports healthy.  Perhaps that is what the next level will be – As athletes from tri-althalon, cycling, running and other paddling disciplines look to the sport as a way to extend their athletic pursuits, it may be this ‘structure’ that attracts a new level of established competitors but the ‘spirit’ of SUP needs to be nurtured along the way.  It’s a great time to be a race organizer and a competitor as they both forge new territory and have their hands on creating the future for the sport.


The folks over at Kalavida have compiled this calendar so feel free to download and stick it to you fridge.
