Beginning in Thursday May 18th, 101 Surf Sports will be hosting a FUN Sprint Racing Series. Bring your own paddle craft or use one of ours. For just $10 (cash on the day) we'll time you over 200 meters; the international distance for spring racing.

One design racing levels the playing field, so we will offer prizes for the fastest on our speedy 17'6 x 23" Starboard Sprint SUP, the ever popular 14' x 28" Starboard All Star SUP, the Epic V7 SurfSki and the 14' Bark Commander Prone.

We will even have a SUP Squatch division (pictured below) and prizes for racers setting new records. Will this be fun - oh yeah - so bring your friends.

We'll run the event as a time trial sending paddlers off the line one by one. There will also be a prize for person voted 'the most improved paddler' over the summer series by the team here at 101 Surf Sports. Kids and Dogs welcome to participate!

Bring your own snacks or apres paddle beverages and hang out in our picnic area after or during racing.
