As SUP becomes more prominent in athletic communities, competitions are starting to pop up all over the world. A few of Caroline’s favorites include the SUP surf competition in San Clemente, California, and a whitewater race in Boise, Idaho. “There is an elite race in Northern California and an event in the Netherlands I am doing soon. SUP is everywhere,” she says.
One of the major races, Battle of the Paddle, is held every spring in Hawaii and at Dana Point, California, in the fall. Also, check out the race at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City this summer.
