Open water racing, a SUP surf event and a flat water river race has to make one of the best all round SUP events to take part in or be a spectator at. But finding the right location and the right crew to put it together and make it happen is never easy. But Taranaki in New Zealand did just that. New Zealand has got so much potential for SUP and some many great venus to run a killer competition. The first weekend in February saw the Taranaki SUP Classic take place on New Zealands West Coast. With great conditions the whole event looks like one of the best all round SUP events out there.
Congratulations to all of the riders who took part in the event. For results, pictures, more information about the event and to get in touch, check out the Taranaki SUP Classic Facebook page here.
With events like these the Kiwis will be making more future World Champions for sure.
