Stop whatever you’re doing right now and watch this awesome Carolina Cup edit. It’s only two and a half minutes long but if you’re not super stoked to grab your board & paddle and get on the water by the time you’re finished, there’s something wrong with you.

Carolina Cup 2015 made headlines for its record setting level of elite competition, however the race has always maintained its grassroots, mass participation vibe. I’m already counting down to Carolina 2016.
This video has everything you need in a SUP racing clip (including some mad drone footage from race start), but it also has a special feel good vibe that perfectly sums up the Carolina Cup.
Casper nails it with: “We share the same passion, we fight for a lot of the same goals, and we definitely have a lot of fun when we’re back on land!”
