SUPX

22/03/2019 What's On 0

SUPX is a river sprint that includes at least four athletes racing at the same time.

Each competitor must navigate the currents and Class II or III white water, while executing 180 and 360 degree turns and technical manoeuvres.and as Johnie Gall of GrindTV says: “Here’s where it get good…

“The race follows an ‘every man/woman for themselves’ format, resulting in a high-octane battle royale that plays out between the river banks.

“The short and technical course quickly descends into chaos, a full-contact match where players barrel into each other, fall off their boards and ultimately emerge belly laughing – podium placement or not.”

The day kicks off with athletes being ranked by Time Trials who then compete in heats of 4 competitors, who battle it out through the rapids, gates and target taps to advance to the next round.

The top two will move on until only four are left to compete in the grand finale.

SUPX tournaments can accommodate as many athletes that can fit into the Time Trial period but only 16 athletes can progress to the quarter, semi and grand finale.

Athletes can have a maximum of two attempts at the Time Trial if time and course availability permits. The best time is ranked.
