Not only do we have the best European SUP elite gathered in Hvide Sande, but also the best Juniors in Europe, which we are very excited about!!
We will kickstart the EUROSUP races on Saturday August 27th from the morning – opening with the SUP Surfing on the beach, if the weather gods will allow it of course, and continue the Surf races the next 2-3 days (28th, 29th, 30th) and eventually celebrate the winners on the podium.
Sprint races will also take place on Sunday August 28th and the medals presented to the winners on the podium.
Tuesday and Wednesday August 30th and 31st it’s all about the SUP Long distance happening on the amazing Hvide Sande Fjord, just 800 meters from the beach – a classic longdistance setting and incredible site for both athletes and spectators.
Friday and Saturday September 2nd and 3rd we hit the Technical Races, a favorite amongst a lot of SUP fans, and we are back on the sandy beaches of the westcoast.
