SUP Gower – Race series


Welcome to the SUP Gower racing page, these races are open to anyone who has there own SUP board regardless of board length, if you fancy being competitive or just burning off some calories – you can race!

Those who like SUP board racing may have longer narrower boards but were a friendly bunch and often have a social drink afterwards so please get involved and don’t be shy.

Formats – The race formats can and will change depending on the conditions , we’ll aim to offer some flat water racing and some more ‘technical’ ‘Lumps and bumps’ races which will usually involve coming in and out through surf and small waves.  (dont worry – not llangennith at 5 ft !)

You don’t need a race board to enter , but to be competitive the longer the better – race classes are 12’6 , 14 ft and ‘Fun boards’  anything under 12ft.

You can stay updated via facebook or twitter by clicking the links above.
The races are planned around the tides so if you plan on entering please get to the location before the start time.
