The disciplines

The ISA World StandUp Paddle and Paddleboard Championship (WSUPPC) features five disciplines: SUP Surfing, SUP Racing Technical, SUP Racing Sprint, SUP Racing Distance, and Paddleboard Racing Technical and Distance.


The championship

The ISA World StandUp Paddle and Paddleboard Championship is an annual event hosted by the International Surfing Association. Nations compete as teams in SUP racing, SUP surfing, and prone paddleboarding, with individual medals and overall team points awarded.


 

The sport

SUP includes everything from full-on action on the biggest waves and racing for the elite to a Sunday stroll with the family on the lake. This makes the sport accessible to a lot of people, which is why SUP is the fastest-growing water sport in the world.

 

Venues

 

 

COPENHAGEN: The event is split between two venues. The opening ceremony will take place Friday, September 1, 2017, just in front of the Royal Danish Opera House.

Prizegiving in racing will take place in Copenhagen.

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.

 
 

KANTRUM

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.
