LIVE WEBCAST: Paddling In The Desert With The World’s Best (Abu Dhabi All-Stars Invitational)

We’re LIVE from Wadi Adventure Park in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates, for the second day of the Abu Dhabi All-Stars Invitational.

This unique specialty event combines the Stand Up World Series (SUP Racing) and the Stand Up World Tour (SUP Surfing) in an insane location: We’re literally out in the middle of the desert, surrounded by crazy mountains and getting baked by the gnarliest sunshine you can imagine.

Many of the world’s best Stand Up Paddlers are here to duke it out, with $20,000 on the line and plenty of bragging rights to boot. Just some of the SUP’ers on show this week are: Jamie Mitchell, Paul Jackson, Fernando Stalla, Leco Salazar, Connor Baxter, Kody Kerbox, Noa Ginella, Olivia Piana, Beau Nixon, Zane Schweitzer and the list goes on…

We’ll be streaming the event LIVE here on SUPracer.com all week. The SUP Surfing finals are in the water today (Friday), then we’re back in Abu Dhabi for the SUP Racing event tomorrow (Saturday).
