Welcome to the 2013 “Find the Glide” contest, presented by SIC. Our mission is to build the largest downwind database on Earth. The “Glide Guide” will give paddlers everything they need to access bump runs the world over, from ideal wind direction to shuttle tips to the best après paddle eats.
And if you help, you could win an SIC Bullet and a three-day, three-night stay for two at our favorite downwind destination (secret spot to be revealed in July).
Here's how: From March through August 30th, enter your local downwind spot into the database and you’re registered to win. At minimum, we need a picture and brief description that includes put-in and takeout, wind direction as well as the prime season. Help other paddlers by giving up more detail (hey, it's not like a crowded lineup, the more the merrier, plus you’ll get a byline in the most complete downwind guide on Earth). Include a jpg of a map (ie Google), best spots to eat and any other favorite details you deem worthy like outfitters, guides or shuttle services. Include a video link in your description or, better yet, upload your videos. Fill out the form below and it’s on.
The drawing will take place in late August so look for weekly updates at SUPthemag.com as SUP magazine editors highlight their favorite weekly glides or follow us on our Facebook page. And may the wind be smokin' wherever you're paddling!
