Sunset Beach Pro Begins Today

The world’s best standup paddle surfers have gathered on the famed North Shore of Oahu for the eighth annual Sunset Beach Pro. The waiting period for this prestigious event was February 11-24, but event organizers have decided the contest will get underway today.

While a storm system with unruly surf and high winds delayed the start of the event, conditions have cleaned up enough for the Men’s trials to begin. Conditions are currently foggy and double overhead, which should provide these paddlers with a good challenge.

The season opening contest will officially kick off the brand new APP World Tour 2017, with the most progressive SUP surfers challenging some of the world’s most powerful waves. It is sure to be a thrilling event and you won’t want to miss a moment.

You can catch all the action with APP World Tour live stream. Also make sure to stay tuned to SUP the Mag for all the recaps, analysis, photos and videos from the Sunset Pro.
