SUP Racing in Tropical Barbados

Competitive paddlers are a very fortunate group of athletes who get compete in some of the most beautiful locations on earth. Whether that be the Molokai 2 Oahu in Hawaii, the Painkiller Cup in the British Virgin Islands, or the Pacific Paddles Games in California, paddlers have the opportunities to race through aquatic paradises. But you don’t have to participate in one of the signature events in our sport to get a taste of racing nirvana.

Case and point is the Paddle Barbados SUP Race Series. This video highlights the first event of the series, which is held in the crystal clear turquoise waters off the coast of Pebble Beach in Barbados. If we didn’t know any better, we’d assume they were racing through a Caribbean postcard.  So take some time to daydream about this dreamy SUP race that’ll make you wish you were there.

For another paddling destination to keep you daydreaming.
