“The Beach Series has a proud place in SUP history as one of New Zealand’s first and longest running competitive stand up paddling events. Back in the summer of 2010 Starboard SUPSNZ and the Houghton Brothers approached Beach Series organisers to deliver a fun weekly opportunity for paddlers of all ages and abilities to get together and improve their fitness and skills over the summer months.

The Beach Series still delivers on every level, with 1km, 3km and 4km race options, free Starboard have-a-go and demo sessions, and a friendly and encouraging atmosphere for everyone from beginners to dream team riders to share a few pre-race laughs and know-how under the Starboard tent, and a well-earned post-race drink and catch up, where all sorts of adventure plans are hatched.” -Victoria Stuart
