SUP Awards Voting is Open
The SUP Awards are standup paddling’s highest honor, recognizing the absolute best that the sport has to offer each year. The SUP magazine editorial staff collected input and nominations from readers and fans over the first half of the year to determine the final nominees.
Three of 2014’s Best: Izzi Gomez, Connor Baxter and Annabel Anderson
Now it’s up to the public to rank standup’s top three male and female paddlers and determine Movie of the Year, Top Expedition and Top Philanthropic Effort. There are plenty of prize incentives just for voting from sponsors including Tommy Bahama, Martin Guitar, GoPro and Futures Fins.
Honorees will be presented at the SUP Awards show presented by Tommy Bahama, Thursday, October 8, 2015, at the historic Casino San Clemente in San Clemente, Calif. The Awards show will precede the inaugural Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life, Oct. 10-11 at Doheny State Beach, boasting a $55,000 prize purse, making this the biggest week in SUP.
“We’re extremely excited for both the SUP Awards and the Pacific Paddle Games,” Will Taylor, SUP magazine editor-in-chief, says. “The combination of these two events will showcase the sport on the highest level, right where it belongs.”
