Kona Brewing Co. SUP Derby Info

The main race course has changed, but the Kona SUP Derby is still here and still the most exciting SUP contest on the water.  Come out and enter for your chance to qualify, or watch the fastest men & women paddlers in the sport battle it out just 100 ft offshore.  The Kona SUP Derby is the most spectator friendly an exciting SUP contest around.

The way it works:
Enter the main race in the SUP Stock (12’6) Division, and place in the top 10 for fastest men & top 10 fastest women.

The second challenge is the Pua’ena Pt Sprint.
Starting on the beach at Surf n Sea, the top 20 paddlers will sprint around the Pua’ena Pt rock and back.

The top 5 men & top 5 women advance.

The final final leg of the Kona Brewing Co.  SUP DERBY is the agility course in the bay behind Surf n Sea.
2 buoys will be set up for each racer. The first paddler to complete 3 laps will be crowned champion, win the big money, and earn bragging rights as the North Shore’s Fastest Paddler.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place for both men & women.
Last year we spectators witnessed multiple thrills, and spills, and exciting come from behind victories.
