“It’s great to be able to put together a Sup Surf Points Series for the coming year. It is positive for the development of this side of the sport here in the U.K, and I would like to thank both Marc and Jason for their time and commitment to assist with its creation.” Commented Richard Marsh, Events Director of BSUPA.

He added: “Over the past few years we have created a every successful National Championship at Watergate Bay, but I know many of the competitors have wanted to see more SUP Surf events on the calendar. This year we have had individuals express interest in developing events of their own, and we can now create this series. Richard Marsh continued by saying: “Three events, three very different locations will also create more rounded champions across each of the main divisions and will undoubtedly assist with generating strength in individuals representing this country at international competition’s such as the ISA Stand Up Paddle Board World Championships.
