The anticipation is high for the most intense and challenging SUP event of the year – the Red Bull Heavy Water Stand Up Paddleboarding 2016! 40 of the world’s best SUP athletes will battle on huge, relentless waves in a course that stretches from Ocean Beach to the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA.
This race is the opening event of the 2016 World Championship Series and will take place during October 18-31, 2016. More details here - http://www.redbull.com/us/en/events/1331781335536/heavy-water-sup-2016
Athletes will need to have a lot of patience to get through this 12Km race course!
Ocean Beach has always been known for its intimidating stretches of coastline. The huge waves are difficult to master – there’s no doubt that paddlers will need to have optimum levels of fitness, courage, knowledge of the ocean, and great paddling skills to take on the dramatic challenge! Check out the preview video below!
Though organizers are monitoring the conditions to pick a perfect window for this sensational event, athletes are expecting a green light a week before the event flags off.
With a combined prize purse of $50,000 and the likes of Kai Lenny, Casper Steinfath, Mo Freitas and Arthur Arutkin participating, Red Bull Heavy Water is destined to become the biggest SUP event of the year.
