Click here to go to the US SUP Tour- San Onofre race website!
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.
Church Beach, in San Onofre State Park, California. Parking will be on Old PCH, accessed at the Basilone Road off-ramp from the 5 Freeway. Look for signage at the first gate on the right. The State of CA will charge a $20 daily parking fee.
You may walk to the beach from the parking lot, but the event will provide shuttles for competitors and a truck to transport boards to the Church’s site for both the Surf and Race days.
You may park at San Onofre State Beach, but beware that the beach may be closed for Marine Corps maneuvers and paddling across may not be allowed either. The best option is to park in the established event parking area.
