Hobie and Salt Life SUP Surf Pro-Am

This event is part of the Waterman's Ocean Festival and is scheduled for Saturday April 18th on the north side of the Oceanic Pier at beautiful Wrightsville Beach. Boasting major sponsors and talented participants from up and down the Eastern Seaboard, it promises to be a world-class SUP competition! In fact, it is currently the largest Stand Up Paddle Surf Prize Purse on the East Coast with the potential for cash prizes up to $6000 in the Pro Divisions.

In addition to the Pro heats, there will also be an amateur competition, divisions for Groms (under 14), Open (15-49), and Master's (50+). One event you certainly don't want to miss is the Longboard SUP Division. Participants will be judged heavily on style and grace! On Sunday, at 3 PM, 3 X World Longboard Champion, Colin McPhillips will conduct a 3-hour clinic. The cost is $150 and class size is limited to 10. Please note: all participants should have some experience in the surf, including paddling out, keeping control of their board, and being able to catch a wave.

This promises to be a family-friendly day of top-notch competition so if you haven't already, dust off those beach chairs and track down your picnic basket!
