SUP 11 City Tour

Athletes will experience the ultimate challenge as they paddle 220 kilometers (136 miles) in five days with weather conditions varying from windless, beautiful and sunny to cold, rainy and stormy.

Besides the ultimate challenge the SUP 11-City Tour is also a unique experience. 200 national and international paddlers are expected to get to know Friesland, the northern province of Holland, from the water. Open fields with windmills, cows, and sheep will present itself along the water ways exchanged by eleven historical cities built from 1700 onwards.

4 t/m 8 SUPtember the 5th annual SUP 11-City Tour will be happening! It will be our first 5-year anniversary. I personally expect over 200 participants. The registration is 2pm – 4pm the 3rd of September followed by the 2ndannual prologue (free for everyone to join!) at 5 pm. Everyone is also invited to paddle with us during the Friday Night SUP in Franeker (6 September) and Saturday evening SUP (7 September) in Dokkum.This year we will ad the team “tour” division and the weekend stage.

Let’s see who are the winners this year and how we can sum up the year 2013 when the coming edition has taken place. We are excited and almost can’t wait to find out! Until then… we’re digging hard to present you an unforgettable edition while enjoying the process and getting ready!

Participants paddle the original waterways, where the ice skaters started conquering this historical tour in event form since 2009 on frozen waters.Stamping posts

The SUP 11-City Tour keeps most ‘elevencity traditions’ in tact like the ‘stamping posts’. When you collect all stamps in each of the historical – authentic Eleven Cities, you will receive your SUP 11-City ‘cross’ – your medal of honor. When you miss a stamp from a city it will seem as you missed a city and therefore not completed the entire 220 kilometers. Since it is hard to get a stamp on land supping a 14 foot board (average board length in this event), we offer you ring a bell and mention your participant number.

SUP Clinics every day (Free of charge/”Gratis”)

At the end of each day (September 4-8) there are SUP clinics organized and supported by our SUP sponsors at the end of each day stage. Everyone is invited to try SUP for the first time or test the latest models around. We also invite schools to offer the youth this new, healthy, cool, balancing, outdoors, green water sport as an alternative sports lesson. When you are interested to buy a SUP board, this is the perfect opportunity to ask information from the SUP industry ‘on the spot’. Also it is a privilege to try different SUP boards that are ‘ready to go’ while watching the pros and amateurs cross the finish line.
