2017 set to go down in history as the biggest edition of the event to date
The 2017 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship, taking place in Denmark from September 1-10, is set to gather the world’s top SUP surfers, SUP racers, and paddleboarders for a historic edition of the event, the first to ever take place in Europe.
The 2017 edition of the World Championship is on pace to be the biggest in the event’s six-year history, as more than 280 athletes from up to 42 nations across all five continents will take to the water in search of Gold Medals.
HKSUPBA as the only national organisation recognised by the ISA in Hong Kong, it is our honour to send our SUP athletes to participate the event on behalf of Hong Kong.
ISA President, Fernando Aguerre, said:
“2017 is shaping up to be a historic edition of the ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship, as the world’s top athletes will compete in record numbers in Denmark.
“The participation of the elite athletes of SUP racing, SUP surfing, and Paddleboard speaks to the international prestige that this event holds and the ISA’s commitment and leadership in developing the sport.
“The beautiful canals of Copenhagen and pristine beaches of Cold Hawaii will provide an amazing backdrop for this record-breaking event.”
The 2017 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championship will take place in two scenic locations across the Scandinavian nation. The event will kick off on September 1-3 with the Distance and Sprint Races in the picturesque canals of Copenhagen, then on September 4 it will head to the rugged northwest coast to Vorupør, known as Cold Hawaii, for the Technical Races, SUP Surfing, and Relay Races. The event will culminate with the Closing Ceremony in Vorupør on September 10.
2017 will be the sixth edition of the event after previous editions were held in Peru (2012, 2013), Nicaragua (2014), Mexico (2015), and Fiji (2016).
