Oklahoma City SUP Racing LIVE on Eurosport Television

ICF Continental and SUP Coordinator Hoichan Kwan says, “The thing I’m most excited about is that we are putting some of the SUP races on Eurosport which is the equivalent to ESPN in Europe. I don’t know if SUP racing has ever been on a major international network before. Local organizers are also in talks with national networks to see if they will show the event as well. This is a big moment in professional stand up paddling!”
