The APP World Tour has the SUP world buzzing.

The four-stop tour — which will also visit New York City, San Francisco and Paris — is set to kick-off this weekend with the London SUP Open.

According to event organizers, the pro field will be stacked with top paddlers including Connor Baxter, Kai Lenny, Izzy Gomez, Casper Steinfath, Michael Booth, Danny Ching, Mo Freitas, Candice Appleby and many others.
