Stand up Paddle (SUP)

Stand up Paddle Board.

If you love to SUP then there’s an event for you every Thursday at City Surf. Choose your event easily depending on the length and style of board you own and participate with like-minded SUP enthusiasts while increasing your fitness each week. The series is focused on fun and fitness with a huge social aspect each week. Competitiveness is friendly and participants are all encouraging and welcoming.

If you are new to the sport, then SUP Social or SUP Team Relay are the ones for you. We will also try to ensure that any one new keen to take part in the City Surf Series has access to a SUP for each event.

Each week a 1.5km course is designed to keep the action close to the beach and work in as favourably with the evenings conditions as possible. The total distance of your event depends on your chosen division.
