The countdown to the big dance in Denmark is almost complete, with the 2017 ISA World Stand Up Paddle and Paddleboard Championship five four three two days away ON!

As we speak, paddlers from almost 40 nations are heading to Scandinavia to prep for the opening ceremony on Friday September 1st and the first day of competition on the 2nd. The ‘Big 5’ (Australia, France, Hawaii, the USA and New Zealand) will be joined by the usual suspects, however we’ll also see at least 10 debutante nations joining what will certainly be the biggest Worlds to date.

SUP Racer will be there as well, and we’ll have daily insights, updates and behind-the-scenes Instagram Stories (so make sure you’re following @supracer).

The live webcast will be streaming here each day (though I won’t be commentating unfortunately), and we’ll also release our predictions on the eve of competition (hint: the Aussies and the French are going to be tough to beat).

In the meantime, here’s the provisional schedule so you know what to expect. Visit the official site for more info.
