Paddle For Hope @ City Surf

Team SUP Relay and Fundraising Challenge

Thursday evenings at Okahu Bay and Mission Bay

Doing good does you good.  So do good for yourself and your favourite cause in the all new Paddle For Hope @ City Surf! 
Starboard's Paddle For Hope has teamed up with NZ’s biggest weekly SUP event to boost the awesome health and wellness benefits you get from paddling with a little feel-good fundraising.
Ideal for newbies, friends sharing a board, families, kids, school or work teams. The Paddle For Hope Team SUP Relay event is a social paddling event, designed for participants who are completely new to SUP and want to have a go in a fun, social, team environment.
There must be four people in a team, with at least one female per team.
For a little extra motivation to help get your team to the start line each week, why not ask your friends and family to sponsor your efforts and raise money for your chosen charity on our Paddle For Hope Give-a-Little page

This year Paddle For Hope has teamed up with three really worthy causes for you to choose from.   Once teams have registered with City Surf you will be invited to start a fundraising page on GIVE-A-LITTLE for one of these charities.   Full instructions on how to start a fundraising page are on the Paddle For Hope website.

  • PaddleOn – the SUP Cancer Rehabilitation Program by PINC & STEEL
  • SeaCleaners – removing rubbish from the sea - “one piece a day”
  • The WELLer Network – breast cancer prevention education


Call your friends and come and join our awesome SUP Community every week on Auckland's waterfront beaches!    

Open all

The teams relay event will be a short course, very close to the beach totalling 4 short laps. The relay course will be solely for the relay teams.
Each team member is to complete 1x lap with the final team member to run over the finish line upon team completion. Each team receives 1x electronic timing chip which will be the team 'baton' to hand over at conclusion of each lap.

If a team has only three members present on any given event day, one team member may do two laps so the team can take part but team points will not be counted for this event. It is down to each team to ensure you have 4x team members turn up each week

All team members must be present ideally for the 615pm briefing or 625pm at your start line. Teams with less than 4 team members present at 625pm will be ineligible for points for this week.

Event Briefing: 615pm
Team Check in: 625pm
Event Start Time: 630pm
Laps: 1 lap for each team member
Distance: Up to 3km (total)
Board: Any SUP type up to 12'6 in length
Division: Mixed Team, must have at least 1x female per team.
his event starts at 630pm and is the last paddle event to get underway each Thursday but designed so each team finishes in unison with all other event participants.

We encourage workplaces to enter their staff as a corporate team, and include your own branding on your event singlets.

Ideally each team provides their own equipment, however a limited number of boards and paddles are available for Paddle For Hope @ City Surf teams if required. Each team member is to compete on the same team board but each team member can have their own paddle.
