SUP 11-City Tour 2012
The SUP 11-City Tour 2012 was a great success with a fun prologue, new faces in the day and tour divisions; also a fierce competition between solo riders and teams. Congratulations to everyone for taking part in an event full of challenges paddling 220 kilometers in 5 days.
Besides the Ultimate Challenge on the water, we had good times with riders and the crew ‘on land’ who worked hard to get the ‘SUP City’ set up everywhere. The ‘FrieseVloot’ ships offered unique accommodation again, traveling with the event. We were extremely lucky with the calm weather and lots of sunshine, almost Hawaiian like temperatures. The 11 historical Frisian cities built from 1700 onwards, exchanged by open landscapes, typical Dutch sheep, cows and wind mills were stunning as always and admired through the eyes of local, National and International participants, friends, families, supporters and many followers ‘online’.
We all look forward to an enlarged participant field in all categories who will embrace their challenge each day, more spectators and involvement with and from the local town, paddling celebrities from TV and good times in our traveling ‘SUP City’ where you can cruise, eat, drink and mingle with a group of International paddles, their friends and family, SUP enthusiasts and Frisian locals.
What categories do we offer in the SUP 11 City Tour 2013?
- You can compete in the solo competition, where the International SUP pros (man/ women) battle for first place 5 days long.
- Besides the competition, we offer the tour version for the amateurs who love to embrace a 5 day long challenge while enjoying the Frisian culture, landscapes and the interaction with friends, fans, family and supporters.
- 2-5 Paddles can form a team, where each team member paddles an entire day stage. There will be a team competition and a team -tour (amateur) category in 2013 as some teams like to battle and some teams like to have fun without the intension or pressure to win.
- Each! of our event days are available for a single day-stage. A single day-stage varies between 30 km (Sunday the 8st of SUPtember) to a distance of 45 km (Wednesday 4 – 7 Suptember).
Early onwards in 2013, we will get back to you via this website for the entry-process and the ‘early bird entry’ discounts!
