Standup World Series Picks Up in Japan
A selection of the World’s best paddlers will descend upon the Japanese surf town of Chigasaki from August 15 – 17, to meet up with a growing local contingent, as well as paddlers from across Asia, for an unforgettable weekend and a US$20,000 World Challenger Series Race, the Shonan Chigasaki Pro.
World Series Finals to Include New Divisions
In addition to the elite level racing, we are proud to build out our Open division for the Long Distance race (for both 14′ and Open class racers), as well as a prone paddleboard and OC1 division, to make for a more complete Ocean Sports gathering at this final event of the 2014 season. The Finals will also include the continuation of the Na Kama Kai Youth Division, where we will see the stars of tomorrow stepping up to do battle inside the protected waters at Kuilima Cove.
So, look forward to a full weekend of action for the SUP world as the 2014 season comes to a close on Oahu’s Fabled North Shore from the October 10th – 12th. Accommodation specials are available (while space is available and by presenting your entry receipt to the reservation staff) and entries are now open.
