SUP racing beach starts / How to SUP video with Ben Pye

Starts don’t get anymore dramatic for both paddlers and spectators, than when SUP racing starting with a running start from the beach. But when starting like this it’s vital to get a good start off the beach because a fast beach starter can launch themselves into a good lead that sometimes can be hard for other paddlers to claw back later in the race.

Starboard UK Team rider Ben Pye gives us a run through of his super slick beach starts.

Remember : Depending on the race and what the race organisers allow you may or may not be allowed to wear a leash.
