The Carolina Cup 2018

This is going to be a great year at the Carolina Cup. We have listened to a lot of your feedback and have made some changes.

1. Graveyard Outrigger and Surfski Races are on Sunday, not Saturday. Saturday Graveyard will be Paddleboard only (traditional and standup)

2. Graveyard Divisions will be 14 feet and under for Mens AND Womens elite. There will be an unlimited division as well. We will be breaking this down into age groups (U17, 18-49, 50-59, 60+)

3. The Juniors Championship will be on Saturday in the

4. Harbor Island 5K race and will be broken down into 2-year age groups between 10 and 17 per the PPG age groups
Harbor Island 5K and Money Island 10K will have both 14' and 12'6 and under divisions for men and women and will have a U17 division, but the juniors focus will be in the Harbor Island Race

5. We are capping the number of racers in each race so we can provide jerseys, medals, and honestly, just be able to safely and enjoyably accommodate only as many as we have the resources to be able to accomodate. If you are racing, you'll need to get your spot.

6. We are making the kid race on Sunday $5 to kids under 12

7. For paddlers racing on Saturday AND Sunday, there is a 50% discount for the second race.

8. Finally, we have not raised the price of the event in 4 years.

9. There is no OC-6 race this year

Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you in North Carolina.

About The Quiksilver Waterman Carolina Cup

Presented by SurfTech

April 18-22, 2018

The 2018 Carolina Cup in its eighth is a week-long event featuring over a dozen clinics and 5 races. On Saturday, there is a 3.5-mile Harbor Island Recreational race, 6.5-mile Money Island Open Race and the dreaded 13-mile Graveyard Elite Race.  On Sunday there is a fun kids race as well as a outrigger  and Surfski race. . In 2017 we added Surfski and OC-1 and OC-2 with numbers to  create there own start times. In 2016, the Carolina Cup was the largest race on the East Coast with over 900 paddlers competing in races and participating in clinics. In 2015 the Carolina Cup became the largest and most competitive SUP race in the world.

You do not have to race to take a clinic or to take a clinic to race. You don't have to race or take a clinic to come watch the race and enjoy the expo and demos.

Bring the whole family for this amazing week.
