SUP magazine created the SUP Awards as standup paddling’s top honor, recognizing the absolute best that this sport has to offer. Our editorial staff tediously collects nominations from readers and fans over the first half of the year. Now it’s up to YOU to rank standup's Top 3 Male Paddlers, Top 3 Female Paddlers, Movie of the Year, and Top Expedition.

This year we’ve merged the awards with a SUP Awards pre-party. The #PPG2017 Kickoff, SUP Awards and Pacific Paddle Games are all presented by Salt Life in 2017.
