Think Chariot Racing meets the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. This is the Whacky Races on the Ocean.
The ultimate Super SUP experience!
Go head to head in a winner takes all sprint paddle race, where anything goes, across the turquoise waters of Newquay bay. Race the clock while navigating around our ocean course.
How does it work?
On arrival at the SUP surfing Centre our friendly staff will split you into two teams, kit you out with a warm comfortable wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and pro paddle, and assign you to your giant sized SUP. Once equipped, armed with your racing vessel and a ferocious team name, we’ll move down to the ocean where our experienced instructors will go through some fundamentals of SUP surfing: launching, effective paddle strokes, SUP steering & control, and kneel paddling.
Following the waterside tutorial we’ll give each group the opportunity to put the theory into practice with a leisurely paddle & SUP surfing session around Newquay’s beautiful Towan headland. But enjoy the tranquillity while it lasts …no sooner are you gliding effortlessly past marine life that make these craggy cliffs their home, than you’re going head to head with your shipmates in a series of silly SUP games (Sumo SUP, King of the SUP, SUP Spinning and Drunken Sailor).
Healthy competition and team spirit
Warmed up, soaking wet and having built a strong team spirit, it’s time to make your way to the start line up alongside your competition on SUP number two. You'll race your opponent or race the clock. The next few moments will be a blur of physical exertion, laughter and under hand tactics (where your paddles become pugil sticks) as you race around our course marker and back, some 200m out to sea.
Whether you cross the finish line by paddling or skulling your adversary’s SUP, victory can only be awarded with everyone on board. You can't leave a man behind! Either way, we guarantee giggles galore and a full body work out like no other! Needless to say there can only be one winner, and those deserved victors will walk away with a bottle of bubbly and bragging rights over their fallen friends.
