Another fun race coming up!!

Sunrise Sup hosts race training nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays and they are having this awesome event on the 30th!! You will not want to miss it


“Hey Paddle People! Join Sunrise SUP for a FUN family friendly race on the South River! This is a FUN race, no cash awards but there will be plenty of STOKE, cool raffles and giveaways, and of course serious bragging rights for the coveted title: “Speed Freak of the South River.”

You asked for it and we HEARD you loud & clear! All race participants will be using the same boards — All Rounders. The Evolve Softy’s or Riviera’s (10’8″x33″). Their generous size-to-volume ratio provides loads of buoyancy, slightly high volume rails and a totally functional shape make for GREAT usability and stability across a range of conditions. Yewww!! And, to keep things EXTRA interesting, we’ve mapped out a course with PLENTY of buoy turns. Ohhhh yeaaa!! So, come prepared for lots of grinning and cheering, shenanigans and a dance party on the deck afterwards…. come on, it’s a GROVE FAMILY sponsored event… who doesn’t like the Cha Cha Slide?

– The race will begin promptly at 7:15 PM and will start from the beach area. This race will have a beach start. Participants will paddle three miles (or 3 laps) around a set course marked with buoys … and here’s where things get interesting… we’ve mapped out the final lap with extra buoy twists & turns (thanks Shendan Grove!) all the way back to the finish line (beach area). More details will be covered in the Racers Meeting at 7 PM. We’ll even have FUN sprints for the kiddos, staying close to shore and family & friends are encouraged to cheer from the beach or the pier!

Check-in: 6:30 PM

Please check in when your arrive. The division of the competitors and the assignment of their numbers will take place at check-in. While you’re there, why not take a selfie with our GIANT Instagram holder (as seen here in our race cover photo!). We’ll also be “droning” footage of the Sunrise SUP CUP.

Please “front end” park in the spaces facing the grass hill, and if possible, keep boards on your vehicles to minimize congestion and keep pathways to the boat ramps clear. It’s a short walk with your board to the beach area! Overflow parking will be just up the hill at The Pier 7 Oyster Bar Restaurant. Thank you 🙏
