SUPport PROductions ran the 2021 Northland regional Schools SUP championships on 10 April at Lake Manuwai near Waipap. The event is an official sanctioned event for Northland Secondary Schools Sports Association (NSSSA), and followed on from the very successful inaugural event in 2019. The event is a unique concept – we provide all the boards and paddles, so as to create a level playing field for all schools and entrants as they are all on identical equipment. Each competitor enjoyed three short races against competitors from their own age group, with coaching sessions in between to help raise the overall standard.
The event was a huge success, with Kaitaia College taking out the overall schools trophy.
