However, at last year’s event, we had athletes from all types of waterways including rivers, ocean and lakes. The competition was fierce but friendly and required some skills I had to acquire on the spot”. Slater also added “This is the one event of the year that is pure fun. Don’t miss it.”


The specialized SUP cross course will test the technical skills of paddlers. Racers will run in heats of four (4) competitors with the winning two (2) racers advancing to the next round. The event also includes repechage heats allowing racers who are knocked out early have another chance of advancing through the competition. The course is subject to change depending on Weber River conditions and water levels.
