SUPport PROductions will be running the 2019 NZ SUP Racing Championships over the weekend of 13/14 April 2019, at Waitangi, Bay of Islands. This will certainly be the biggest event we’ve done yet, but with the experience of running several Triple Crowns under our belt, along with having been very much hands-on with the 2014, 2015 and 2016 National Champs (at Ohope, Omaha, and Omaha respectively), particularly on the scoring and results side of things, we’re confident we’ll be able to put on a really awesome show.

For more details on the champs, keep an eye on

The event will be hosted at the stunning Lake House restuarant, and the paddling will all be happening around the canals and waterways of Lake Hood.

SUP Team Challenge – new event concept!

SUPport PROductions has been commissioned by a leading board brand to come up with a whole new concept of stand up paddleboard events. Something that gets away from the ‘sharp end’ of hardcore racing, instead creating an event that is primarily about participation. Something that people will come to simply because it’s fun. The plan we have come up with is a 2 day series of challenges involving paddleboarding, for teams of 4 – with each team having to include at least one youth/master, and one junior/senior member. Some of the challenges may involve a race element, but others will be more around problem-solving, treasure hunts and multi-rider activities. Stuff that anyone of any ability level can enjoy.� The project is coming together very well, and we hope to announce the first events very soon.� Watch this space!
