For the uninitiated, SUP is stand-up paddleboarding taking on the challenge of surfing by a wide variety of skill levels in the surf. The competition is organised by TassieSUP based in the Southern Beaches area taking up classic surf spots like Carlton Beach, Marion Bay, the legendary Stoogies, as well as surf anywhere in the tradition of surfing.
With a good grouping of seasoned and peep competitors, and forecasted excellent surf conditions, the program will kick off at 8.30am Saturday the 22nd June with competitive elements finalising at the Classic’s presentation dinner that evening at Lufra Hotel, Eaglehawk Neck.
The weekend competition will finalise on Sunday morning with early morning paddle from Lufra Cove taking on the chill and exhilaration of an early paddle on the winter solstice day.
