Stand Up Paddling
18 - 21 Jun 2020
During FIBArk weekend we will crown the overall top Man and Woman in the emerging sport of river stand up paddling. Stand Up Paddling or SUP originated in the coastal regions but for the last 7-8 years SUP has taken over the whitewater scene. Top athletes will compete in three disciplines competing for a nearly $2,000 cash purse
Come check out these amazing athletes as they surf river waves on their stand up paddle boards. Location to be determined based on water flows, Scout Wave (downriver from the F Street Bridge) or the office wave (upriver from the main play hole, in back of Absolute Bikes)
In what has quickly become the most spectator friendly SUP competition on the river, SUP Cross is head to head racing through gates in the Salida Whitewater Park. Four athletes will battle (and they will be battling!) through a technical course as we pair down the paddlers to the top 4 for a winner take all final. Rubbing is racing!
