THERE will be heaps of fringe events at the Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut.
Three new events added to the SUP festival surrounding the main race: the Express Two Storey Living Djeridjinap Run with Travis Grant and Terrene Black on December 1, SUP Yoga on December 2 and the SUPWA SUP Canal Tour also on December 2.
For SUPWA members ($25 a year), the events are free to enter.
King of the Cut chairman Greg Kerr has encouraged SUP enthusiasts to take advantage of the events.
“The idea behind these events is to encourage paddlers to get involved, as we say in the SUP community,” he said.
Mr Kerr said the events were aimed at those with paddling experience who would like to get more out of the sport.
“The Djeridjinap Run is a great opportunity to for flatwater paddlers to learn downwind techniques from two world champions,” he said.
“It’s a social paddle and an opportunity to gain some new skills and confidence downwinding.”
“We have the best conditions in the world for downwind SUP and we’d love to see more paddlers to take advantage of it.”
Two 45-minute SUP Yoga sessions will be held at 8am and 9am on Saturday, December 2 on the Eastern Foreshore in Mandurah.
The guided Canal Tour will take place after yoga at 10am through the picturesque Mandurah waterways.
Registration for SUP yoga and the Canal Tour is from 8am.
The Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut is a 24km race in Mandurah on December 2.
