Red Bull Heavy Water is back in October

Red Bull Heavy Water is back in October

Red Bull Heavy Water, arguably the most intense stand-up paddling event in the world, will return as part of the 2018 APP World Tour circuit, with an event happening between a weather window of October 15 and November 2. The location will guarantee 36 of the world’s best SUP athletes, waves over 10 feet high and consist of an open course stretching 12 km (7.5 miles) starting from the San Francisco Bay and finishing at Ocean Beach. 

In this third annual event, a true test of physical strength, strategic planning and determination, athletes from the Men’s and Women’s APP World Tour circuit will be welcomed to the start line. Along with the welcome addition of new athletes and a change in course structure, Red Bull Heavy Water will be an ocean-friendly Deep Blue Event™. Red Bull and the APP World Tour will be working with Sustainable Surf and the local Ocean Beach community to leave a positive impact — keeping waste out of oceans and landfills, supporting the local community, going plastic straw-free and minimising the carbon footprint. Words APP World Tour
