Tour Overview

The US SUP Tour is the joint brainchild of surfer, turned SUP surfer, Ian Cairns and Chuck Hendsch, the COO of the National Professional Paintball League, now also an avid SUP Surfer. The idea of the tour is to create a series of US events that provide a uniform platform for SUP Racers and Surfers to compete on a regular basis, both as professionals and as recreational paddlers. We all know that SUP has the potential to blow up huge, but someone has to go out and make it happen. This is our contribution to the movement.
