WHAT IS SUP?
SUP is an acronym that stands for “standup paddleboarding” and it is the fastest growing sport in the world.
THE ULTIMATE PADDLE BOARD FESTIVAL
On December 8th & 9th, the APP World Tour finishes its racing season with the World's Largest Partcipatory Race in Paris. This third and final stop on the 2018 World Tour will be where the 2018 APP World Champions for SUP racing will be crowned.
In addition, the Paris SUP Open will host a mass participation race, building out of the 9-year legacy of the Paris SUP Crossing which is the largest SUP race in the world to date. Registration for this extraordinary event will open on September 15th, 2018 and be capped at 800 paddlers. The opening of registration for the Paris SUP Open will be the same day as the historic Statue of Liberty paddle in NYC, 2nd stop on the 2018 APP World Tour and City Paddle Festival events.
