stand up paddle race results by Starboard

     2016 Stand Up Paddle Races — skip to June | July | August | September | October | November | December | 2017

A quick note about changes to the star rating system in 2016: We are now aligning our Race Calendar ‘Star Ratings’ with the World Rankings ‘Race Index’ system. For example, a 4-star race is now guaranteed to count for at least 40% on the Race Index, which means there will be at least 40.00 world ranking points on offer for the winners. All races that aren’t on the international level (and therefore won’t count towards the World Rankings) are listed as either ‘local’ or ‘regional’ — any and all events are still eligible to count towards the rankings, but only if they naturally score 15% or more on the Race Index.

Read the “Changes to the World Rankings and Race Calendar” announcement for more info.

Are we missing a race? Let us know

What’s the deal with the Star Ratings ★★? They’re a combo of an event’s level of competition, prestige, participation and prize money. It’s just a simple guide to help separate the local events from international races and make the SUP Race Calendar easier to use. It’s totally unofficial, so don’t worry too much if your race has more or less stars than another. Though with 600+ races per year, we’re bound to get some ratings wrong… so let us know if we’re way off.

Big thanks to the crew at Paddle Guru (which is an excellent paddle race management service), Distressed Mullet (East Coast USA), Forum de SUP (excellent info on SUP races in France), Stand Up Magazin (great for SUP races in Europe), SUP Currents (Northern California), CB SUP (great resource for Stand Up Paddle races in Brazil), SUP South Africa and Wet Feet Hawaii (great for SUP races in… you guessed it, Hawaii) for helping out with some additional stand up paddle race schedules. And thank you to the hundreds of event organisers and paddlers that have sent us details about so many races from all around the world.
