2014 U.S. SUP Tour Schedule, Prize Money

US SUP Tour San Onofre 2013 (13)
Here’s the schedule for the 2014 U.S. SUP Tour, with three stops across the United States California between March and October starting in Huntington later this month.

The schedule actually got announced a month ago but now we’ve seen details of the prize money as well. The first stop on the Tour, the Huntington Beach event from March 21-23, will offer paddlers a $15,000 purse, with $1.5k going to the top guys in the SUP racing and SUP surfing respectively, while another $1,500 is reserved for the overall champion woman (combined results racing + surfing).

The U.S. SUP Tour, now in its second year, is designed not only to boost the sport in the States but also to help select the U.S. Stand Up Paddle Team for the ISA World Champs.  Each event involves a separate SUP surfing event and a SUP race.

Dates for this year’s three events are below while there are more details on the official site. Though keep in mind there’s a good chance the Hermosa event in October will have to be moved, now that the World Series Finals have moved (because the Battle of the Paddle moved…).
