The SUP racing community has a new championship tour for 2018. The series will include some of the better known races in the world while others will cater to smaller, community races. There is a point system where the bigger races will count for more points than some of the smaller ones. The bigger races will take place in some pretty amazing venues. We can all look forward to seeing how this series fits in with the other race series that have already been established.
THE PADDLE LEAGUE LAUNCHES NEW SUP WORLD TOUR
By SUP Magazine
Standup paddling has a new league and a new championship tour for 2018. Meet The Paddle League, an organization who’s mission is to “build a better, brighter and more sustainable future for standup paddling that benefits all of the sport's stakeholders.” Rather than trying to reinvent the sport or create new events, The Paddle League World Tour will, “collaborate with top independent events that have helped build the sport.”
The Tour will feature an international series consisting of nine races, plus several “Regional Tours” that will include about two dozen grassroots events. The points system will be interlinked, with the goal of making SUP racing as inclusive as possible.
