Benefitting Charity

Every year we choose a local cause near and dear to our hearts to SUPport, raising awareness and funds for a great cause.  This year we've partnered with Above the Wake, a non profit organization with a mission to create positive experiences on the water for children with Autism and cognitive delays, breaking down stigmas and unleashing potential for greatness through individual teachable moments. We've personally experienced this mission in action where kids learned to SUP, ZUP board and more. Watching their faces light up as they were successful and having fun on the water was one of the most rewarding feelings. This organization brings so much light to these kids' (and their caregivers') lives and we're so proud and excited they are part of our event! Please spread the word - let's get lots of participation to raise awareness and funds for Above the Wake!

2016 Race Recap & Results


Feel Good

I’ve been to a lot of SUP races. Wakeboard contests. Hockey Tournaments. Events. The ones that bring us back year after year are the ones that tap into something close to our hearts. It is a feel good vibe. Laughs. Smiles. High fives. Don’t get me wrong we all love some great competition. But the whole package is what seals the deal. And seeing smiling faces. That is just the icing on the cake. This is the case in Orlando Florida.
