Copenhagen SUP Crossing
COPENCOLD HAWAII OPENING DAY
Challenge yourself on the same course as the world’s best SUP athletes and be part of a huge social SUP event.
As a prelude to COPENCOLD HAWAII, we are implementing a new SUP concept to the ISA World for non-elite athletes.
We call it ‘KANTRUM’. The name refers to a contraction of the Danish words ‘kant’ (edge) and ‘centrum’ (centre).
Four of the events are held in the biggest cities of Denmark (the ‘centres’ of Denmark), and the rest are held at smaller locations (the ‘edges’ of Denmark).
The pinnacle of the KANTRUM SUP concept is the ‘Copenhagen SUP Crossing’, on September 1st in Copenhagen, on the opening day of the ISA World Championship.
