SUPstock – a Festival of Paddling at Sunset Surf

Posted on July 13, 2010 - Filed Under Stand Up Paddling, Surftech Boards | By

Hey guys be sure to check out Sunset Surf Shop on the 17th & 18th July for SUPstock!

There will be no races or competitions just a huge weekend of Stand Up Paddleboarding fun events, demo equipment and much much more. Saturday afternoon/evening brings with it a wicked hog roast, BBQ and beers accompanied by live music. Its gonna be one awesome weekend people!

A chilled out festival of Stand Up Paddleboarding, Music & Aloha, in association with BSUPA & Sunset Surf. We have some awesome music lined up on the Saturday afternoon/evening in a great setting, at a stunning Cornish beach. Amazing sunsets, hence the cafe name, clear blue ocean & hopefully some sweet waves. There are demo boards by Surftech, plus others, coaching tips on & off water, great food during the day at the cafe, a hog roast on Saturday night at Sunset Surf, chilled vibe & lots of SUP action. There is no charge for any of the water activity, it’s just a “gathering” of likeminded SUPers who also like a few tunes. If you are new to SUP you are most welcome.

We are super lucky to have both Steve & Mandy West, who are both great coaches in the art of paddling a SUP, delivering on land paddle clinics for men & women. If you are a lady looking to improve your paddling technique or want to ask questions about the sport without us blokes around, this is a perfect opportunity. Mandy’s coaching clinic will have something for all levels of female paddlers. Us blokes get time with Steve West who is a legend in the paddling world and the two of them are offering these clinics to all SUPstock gatherers at no cost, 30 or so minutes of your time exceptionally well spent. This is coaching for all levels of paddler & you will learn something new, then you take it out on the water and smile a lot as it clicks into place. Check them out at www.islanderpaddler.com.

BSUPA will be there as will some BSUPA coaches to offer on water surf tips, if you are not a member of BSUPA, its worth considering for the 3rd party insurance. Although membership is not a requirement to attend SUPstock they are the governing body of our sport & are working hard on our behalf so all they would ask is you give it some consideration.

There will be a white board with a guideline of the program for the weekend based at the cafe, but it will be a very chilled weekend, no heats or competitions, just a perfect weekend of learning, music & meeting new SUP friends. If you want food on the Saturday night at Sunset Surf you will need to buy a ticket before 11am on the Saturday so that they have an idea of the numbers. Cost is not confirmed as yet but these guys usually do a bang up spread which is real value for money. Plus the beer there tastes so good , especially after a surf/paddle.

To get to Sunset Surf & Gwithian, drive to Hayle on the A30, head into Hayle , turn right after Lidl (if coming from up country/A30) up the hill, as the hill flattens out turn left , down the single lane road and the car park is on your left & the cafe on the right.

Don’t forget to add the event to your facebook!
