SUPSA is pleased to release the 2017 SUPSA Ranking Series in both the Race and Wave Series.

There is still some updating and confirm of event dates but SUPSA wanted to get the dates out sooner rather than later to help you better plan your SUP event and travel arrangements in advance. SUPSA will update the status of these events as and when they are made known by event organises. Looking forward to an exciting year ahead with many new face making their appearance on the competitive scene this year. Look out for plenty of local events that will be coming your way this year, get down to your weekly events and meet other water warriors and enjoy the glide.

 

Happy paddling,

 

Thomas King
