SUPSHED SPRING SERIES

Sundays rule at Orewa Beach with the SUPSHED SPRING SERIES proudly presented by Starboard, a six-event SUP and Prone Paddleboard series to crank up your fitness ready for summer.  Don't have a race board?  No worries!  It doesn't matter what kind of board you ride, longboard, surf SUP, clubbie board, bring it along just for fun and get your glide on.  The courses will be varied and adapt to take advantage of the best conditions on the day.  All ages and ability levels are welcome, and boards can be supplied for novice SUP race entrants. Open all
