SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (August 1, 2016) — Voting for the 2016 SUP Awards presented by Tommy Bahama is now open at SUPAwards.com and will continue through the end of August. The SUP Awards, now in their sixth year, are standup paddling's highest honor, recognizing the absolute best athletes, videos and accomplishments the sport has to offer each year.
The SUP magazine editorial staff collected input and nominations from nearly 50 top industry insiders to determine the final nominees. Now it's up to the public to rank standup's top three male and female paddlers and determine Movie of the Year and Top Expedition. There are plenty of prize incentives just for voting from sponsors including Tommy Bahama, GoPro, Kona Deep and California State Parks. Honorees will be presented at the SUP Awards show presented by Tommy Bahama, September 28, 2016, at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, Calif.
