Last year the team launched a unique round Bermuda charity SUP event called the Devil’s Isle Challenge. At 40 miles this is the longest ocean SUP race in the world and can be tackled solo or in relay teams of up to eight paddlers. The event raises awareness of plastic pollution and everyday solutions, while also raising funds for a program the team have established called SUP’r Kids Bermuda. This free paddling program gives kids the opportunity to learn SUP and integrates environmental awareness and stewardship with the goal of inspiring the next generation of ocean advocates.

This year the event will be held on May 6th (circumnavigation race) and 7th (sustainability paddlefest) and will welcome anyone fancying the hop from the UK to take part.
