Bambu Bash 2016

SUP'n is in the air! 

Save The Date! We are excited to announce that we have re-scheduled the second annual Bambu Bash on Belton Lake due to the flooding. The race is now taking place on August 6th, 2016, at the Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA). The Bambu Bash will be a one-day event with a 10k SUP and a 5k SUP / Kayak fun race, followed by a kids race and ending the races with a fun filled SUP Derby.  This is a great event for the entire family.

No board? No problem, Waterside Sports will have boards available to rent for the race. However, supplies will be limited so reserve your equipment today!

Don’t feel up for paddling a 5k or 10K? Well, the SUP Derby may be right up your alley.

You will want to bring the family and enjoy the day of activities!

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. 

The Sup Derby is a fun way to get everyone on the water whether you have paddled before or not. 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.
