Series Requirements + Participation Guidelines

Over the course of the New England Summah SUP Series you will encounter a wide variety of paddling experiences. The North Shore SUP Cup offers a fast, flat water race, while the Paddle for Plummer, Misery Challenge and the Cape Ann SUPah Bowl all on open ocean, will reveal a variety of unknown elements, chop, wind and swells. With races ranging from a 1.5 to 5 miles, by the end of the series you will have experienced what New England racing is all about.

To be eligible for Series points, cash and prizes, you are required to register for a minimum of 3 out of the 4 races.  If you’re ALL IN and register for all 4 races, you’ll have the opportunity for a “throw away race”.  Meaning, your best 3 races will be scored for Series points.  As an incentive, each race has offered a $20 discount to encourage series participation.

Please use promo code=NESUP when registering for each individual race.

The board class you register for must be consistent in all races to be eligible for Series points, cash and prizes. Please be sure to enter into the appropriate class you will be racing in when registering for each individual race as there are many categories.

The New England Summah Series will be scored based on each paddler’s finishing times.
