The Bambu Bash will be a Beach Start and finish 5k and 10K race going in clockwise motion (Left to Right) There Will be 5 buoy turns per lap (with exception of one extra for 10k'ers when continuing onto another lap) 
10k paddlers will launch into the water first followed by the 5k paddlers. 5k paddlers will do one lap while 10k paddlers continue on another lap. 

Sup Cross is a fun way to get everyone on the water whether you have paddled before or not. Much like Motor Cross with dirt bikes, the goal is to stay on you board, paddle the fastest and finish in the front! For elite to beginners it will be a short course with 5 bouy turns and a bunch of rambling and fighting for the lead between the 6 competitors in your heat. It will be single elimination, top two advance, and Male and Female brackets. The racers will all use the same board which will be provided by Bounce Boards.
