The beautiful island of Korea is the birthplace of inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard (iSUP) technology, home to many world class Olympions and now home to the SurfOcean Cup, the 1st Korean SUP Championship. Thanks to event organiser River Jaeho Lee and this fantastic event, we can guarantee the SUP ability level in South Korea will only rise. It looked like a great event for all levels and smiles all round, on and off the water.
We look forward to seeing more SUP events in Korea and seeing some of their paddlers on the world tour soon.
Nearly 100 stand-up paddlers from across South Korea and International paddlers from Canada and the United States participated in the country’s 1st Surf Ocean Cup 1st Korea SUP Championship. Elite and Open Division paddlers competed in Sprint and Distance races. The final event was the always entertaining Team Relay event. Thank you to all the participants and sponsors. See you next year! Words : River Jaeho Lee
