Whitewater SUP Competitions presented by Surf Dayton


Saturday: 2pm (competitor’s meeting at 1:45pm at Surf Dayton tent)

In what has quickly become the most spectator friendly SUP competition on the river, SUP Cross is head to head racing through gates or around Buoys at the Mad River Run. 4-5 athletes will battle at a time(and they will be battling!) through a technical course as we pair down the paddlers to the top 4 for a winner take all final. Rubbing is racing! (Boards must be 11’ or under, helmets and PFDs required. There will be a Men’s and Women’s open division. Everyone will race at least twice. Top 2 of each qualifying heat will advance. There will be a last chance bracket where the winner will be thrown back in the mix at chance to compete for that podium spot.

Notice: Paddlers should have whitewater experience. Helmet, and PFDs are required. Shoes are highly recommended.
