  • In June SUPIA focuses on increasing participation in SUP through free, fun kids events everywhere! see more

    ***2017 Details Coming Soon***


    During the entire month of June, events will be held all over the US and abroad focused on getting young people outside and on the water enjoying the fastest growing water sport – Stand Up Paddleboarding. SUPIA Youth SUP Days are designed to get as many kids on the water as possible, to educate in skills and water safety, and mold the next generation of SUPers.

    SUP Industry Association is teaming up with member businesses to hold these events at no charge on waterways all over the country and abroad. Offering a free event to youth at the beginning of the season encourages them to get involved without financial constraint, to try something new, to get outdoors! And then perhaps take it to the next level – join a summer program, plan a birthday party, organize a family or friend event, train for races, buy a board – great for them and for the SUP Industry.
