Registration Open for the Bilbao World SUP Challenge

Registration is now open for the Bilbao World SUP Challenge, a Prime Pro-Am event. The Standup World Series event, which boasts $20k in prizes, will be held in the Basque region of Spain from June 21 – 23.

Pro and Open (Amateur) divisions will be offered, and as the Bilbao World SUP Challenge is a “Pro-Am” event, competitors can register and compete in both divisions. Races include a long distance race (with different courses for Pro and Open divisions shown below), a heat-elimination sprint race, and a Na Kama Kai Youth Challenge. Other fun events include family and team races as well as relays and fun paddles.
