mooloolaba sup festival

Sunshine Coast SUP Club is proud to be the host club for Mooloolaba SUP Festival and partner with world safaris and the Sunshine Coast Council. We are super excited to be able to bring the “Aloha spirit” that the Hawaiians are so famous for when it comes to stand up paddle boarding to Mooloolaba. More than just a stand-up paddle board race the festival will embody the community spirit that we have here on the Sunny Coast where no matter your background if you have a love for SUP, the water and sharing it with others we welcome you with open arms.

a great way to enjoy level 1 nz paddle boarding nationals!

Waterbourne beach festival got away again today in Level 1. The event kicked off with the Barfoot & Thompson Stand Up Paddleboard Nationals, which is a 3 day competition that started with sprint racing at Lake Pupuke this afternoon. This will be followed by a long distance 16km race tomorrow at Takapuna Beach and the technical race getting underway on Sunday. The conditions were ideal down at the Lake today with flat water, light breeze and blue sky. There were 80 athletes that showed up this afternoon and a good crowd gathered to cheer them on during the heats and the finals. Each race was 200m and lasted only about a minute each, which kept the racing tight and exciting to watch. Jo Aleh took out 1st place in the woman’s category…
