For the fourth year, we will be waiting for you in the “SUP Fests” at Vaidava – it will be two days of pure joy, a little competition and fun! You will be welcomed by good SUP instructors who will help and train you if you are on the SUP for the first time. There will be individual SUP paddling competitions and competitions for teams to compete with friends 🏄♂️🏄♂️🏄♂️🏄♂️.
For the first time, in cooperation with the Latvian Surf and SUP federation, during the festival we will also crown the Latvian SUP champions! And all the paddlers, regardless of the result achieved, will participate in a raffle in which 😁 the new Red Paddle Co SUP board will be the main prize. 😁
You will also be able to take part in the SUP light in the dark expedition and morning energy boost on SUP boards. You can test your strength on the SUP obstacle track on the water and OneWheel on the ground. Have you participated in SUP rogaining?!? You can do it in Vaidava! Is that all?!? NO! There will be other surprises! Don`t miss out!
Make dates in your calendar, get your team – family members, friends, or work colleagues to share a great weekend together and maybe you will win the new SUP board!
