Stand Up Paddling, also known as SUP, is a sport where athletes stand on a large stable board and use a long-handled paddle to propel through water. The competition has a clear start and finish line with winners posting the fastest time.

We encourage all masters athletes to grab your dry bags and meet us in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. to see what’s SUP in Summer 2024.

There will also be a parasport/adaptive option for stand up paddling (ICF).
