Stand up paddlers at the start of the Endless Adventure beginner's race on the Columbia River on July 8

Stand-up paddlers invited to hit the water

Second annual SUPrace set for Saturday, July 6 on the Columbia River

On Saturday, July 6, Endless Adventure presents the 2nd Annual SUPrace on the Columbia River between the Robson boat launch and the old Robson ferry landing, a flatwater section ideal for beginners.

[Editor’s Note – to view a gallery from last year, click HERE.]

As Stand Up Paddle-boarding (SUP) has grown in popularity throughout the Kootenays, the SUPrace provides an opportunity for beginners, intermediate, and expert paddlers to get together and share their love of the sport, with an added dose of friendly competition.

Last year, over 20 competitors came out from all over the Kootenays. This year, the race day will allow for two separate races, with registration starts at 10 a.m. at the Lions Head Pub in Robson. Endless Adventure will be providing an opportunity to demo their vast selection of SUP boards.

Whether you are interested in trying an inflatable SUP, a fiberglass beauty, or a foam top, you will be able to find a SUP board that suits you best. Plus, there are many prizes to be won.

Come on out to cheer on the competitors, learn to SUP or find your perfect board, all in one day. Contact Endless Adventure at 250-359-8181 or email
