2016 Sayulita SUP National Finals Highlights

SUP competition season is now in full swing, with paddling events taking place around the world. This includes a SUP surfing contest that recently took place in Sayulita, Mexico–located only 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. The 2016 Sayulita SUP National Finals was a weekend-long competition from May 6-8 that brought paddlers together to compete in both racing and surfing disciplines. In this edit, we find highlights from what looked like a very successful event.

After a healthy field of paddlers competed in the racing event, many talented SUP surfers took to the water and put on a epic display of textbook progressive SUP surfing. 360s, aerials and powerful turns were all executed perfectly, despite waves that remained small throughout the contest. So hit that play button and enjoy watching some fresh faces shredding south of the border.
