Seaside Heights City Officials informed the US SUP Tour that the clean-up and removal of hazardous materials in the waters offshore have not been completed as planned. Therefore, as a result of the Hurricane Sandy disaster on the east coast, and specifically the damage to the New Jersey area and Seaside Heights region, we have been forced to cancel the US SUP Tour event that was planned for May 18 – 19, 2013.
City officials were optimistic about their ability to clean up the beach and ocean on time to conduct the Seaside Heights US SUP Tour event, however, circumstances beyond their control, specifically state and federal authorities, have mandated no water events would be allowed to be conducted in the ocean or on the beaches surrounding Seaside Heights, N.J., until further notice.
The US SUP Tour and the sanctioning bodies apologize for the inconvenience to all competitors and sponsors of the event. We are now focusing our attention on the next scheduled US SUP Tour event, the first ever SUP races at San Onofre State Beach’s famous Church surf break, June 14 – 15, 2013.
Registration and event details can be found on the US SUP Tour and PaddleGuru.com. We look forward to showcasing a great event at this premiere location in Southern California, where we will offer $10,000 in prize money and great prizes for all of the Open competitors.
