The Return of the Florida Cup

Welcome back to the Florida Cup, Tampa Bay’s premier paddling event. The Cup took a little hiatus last year, but it was back in full force for 2015, with more than 100 entrants in the 9-mile elite race and plenty more in the additional recreational, fun and kids paddling races. It’s open to all forms of paddle crafts, and it’s a grand time for all. This year’s top SUP finisher, the veteran Bubba Ellis, finished first in the 14′ class ahead of young buck Chase Kosterlitz. Put it in the books for next year and you too could be the Florida Cup SUP champion.
