All riders will be required to sign an event waiver and must have an IKO insurance number.

STAND UP and PADDLE!! NO WIND, NO PROBLEM!!!


SUP RACES: We will be setting up an interesting Stand Up Paddle Board race that will emphasize board control just as much as power and speed. This will be “Mano Y Mano”, featuring head to head racing of only two riders at a time. Winners will advance through heats to meet in final rounds.

Adventure Sport Miami will have a few SUP’s on hand for riders to use during their heats. Prizes will be awarded to the top 4 finishers.
