Connecticut is home to 96 miles of diverse coastline; with beaches, estuaries, marshlands, and a growing number of outdoor sports enthusiasts. Among those include the stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) community.
SUP races are becoming increasingly popular across the state, with popular ones like the Charles Island SUP Cup held in June and the New London Cup in August. Joining in on the fun, the Surfrider Connecticut Chapter launched the Surfrider Sprint Series. Teaming up with five different paddle races, the chapter offered an exciting way to spread Surfrider's mission of protecting our ocean, waves and beaches.
