North East SUP Race calendar for Summer 2017

Global Partner

So many people have asked me for a list of stand up paddle races here in the North East.  It’s easy enough to compile if you do the research!  I start planning my season racing calendar around November of the previous year.  Then, I add on new races or updates as the schedule allows.  Here’s the quick list of some great events happening in the North East this summer!

North East Stand Up Paddle Races & Events for 2017

This is by no way a comprehensive list.  There are a ton of races in NJ and further South I know nothing about.  Please check for additional events and, if you would like to send me a few I don’t have listed here, you can email me at:  Several events here are linked to that page.  You can click on the link to learn more about those particular events.

She is a year-round surfer and paddler living on the eastern tip of Long Island in NY who is a certified SUP instructor, seasoned SUP racer and avid longboard surfer. Evelyn was hired as Online Editor to Standup Journal in 2016. Her passion for the project quickly led to her success and eventually taking over the mag herself in Oct. 2018. Today, as editor, publisher and chief bottle washer at Standup Journal, Evelyn keeps her toes wet writing, traveling, paddling, surfing, and learning to foil. You can find her most days paddling out on Gardiner's Bay or surfing Ditch Plains in Montauk, NY.
