Monthly Round-up of SUP / April 2024

Welcome to our collection of the biggest news and stories that have taken place in the SUP world from the previous month. Let's recap what happened in April 2024.

Longboard SUP Revolution Cosmic Bali Event - Longboard SUP Surfing

On the 2nd of April in Sanur, Bali, the Longboard SUP Revolution (LSR) concluded its five-day competition in stellar wave conditions. The event brought together nearly 100 SUP surfers from various countries for an exhilarating contest and a vibrant celebration of the SUP Longboard community.

The Longboard SUP Revolution 2024 is a pivotal event that facilitates the exchange of knowledge, expertise, and best practices across countries, enriching participants with fresh ideas and perspectives. Winners included Benoit Carpentier, Camille Dubrana, Dimity Faulkner, Mathieu Carpentier and Richard Wain.

SUP Twelve - Endurance SUP Event

The endurance race event SUPTwelve concluded over the weekend in Torbay, UK with Paul Simmons and Tanja Ecker taking the win in their respective divisions. SUPTwelve runs for 12 hours from 7am until 7pm with a very simple objective: Who can paddle the most laps in 12 hours?

Brendon Prince from the Long Paddle created this event as a way to showcase endurance SUP racing and the event attracted nearly 100 competitors  this year. SUPTwelve takes place on coastal water, over a course of approximately 3.5 km, all paddlers start at 7am and every lap of the course will be professionally timed & recorded. The 3.5km course has been designed to give maximum visibility to the supporter and greatest interest for the paddler for such a short course.  Repeating laps, time and time again, forces the paddler to ‘dig deep’ if they want to champion the 12 hours.  The course, more so than the time will challenge the paddlers resolve and mental strength to keep paddling when it would be so so easy to stop and rest.

Head Of The Dart - UK SUP Race

The Head of the Dart SUP race concluded last weekend in brilliant sunshine for one of the UK’s biggest SUP and rowing races. Hector Jessel and Holly Pye took the wins in the 14′ class.

The Head of the Dart SUP Challenge is an annual event in April and sees more than 250 paddlers taking part, making it the largest SUP event in the UK.  Each year, paddlers come together to complete the 14km course along the River Dart taking in the beautiful Devon countryside running between the historic town of Dartmouth and Totnes, alternating directions every year.   It is traditionally seen as the season opener, with paddlers travelling from all of the country, and further afield!
