Kids SUP race in La PazDon’t miss out on the fun! On Sunday, November 29th, the 5th Annual SUP Races La Paz will take place. The fun starts at 8:00 a.m. on the malecón and 5 de Mayo, in front of Harker Board Co.

There are categories for men, women, and children, as well as a team relay race with a minimum of one woman per team. There is no entrance fee, as it really is a day the whole family can take part in and enjoy SUP! To enter, all you need to do is head over to Harker Board and sign up for the big day.

Harker Board Co. has been organizing the event for the past five years with the help of local sponsors who supply prizes for the winners of each event.

What is SUP? SUP stands for Stand Up Paddle. It is the latest, greatest way to paddle through the clear, beautiful waters of Baja California Sur. It is also the fastest growing water sport in the world.

Bryon Harker, the event organizer, feels SUP is an important sport to practice – not only as a tourist or recreational attraction, but also as a way of staying healthy throughout a lifetime. He recalls that when he moved to La Paz seven years ago, he was nearly the only one practicing the sport. But gradually, the number of participants has increased. Today, Bryon says, you can see up to 30 people every day out enjoying SUP in the Bay of La Paz.

So whether you have experience with SUP or are just a beginner, the 5th Annual SUP Races La Paz is calling you to have some fun! Paddleboards are available for participants to use free on race day.

Harker Board Co. is located at Alvaro Obregon No 299 (north end of the malecón) between 5 de Mayo and Callejon Constitucion. Tel. 612 122 7661. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/HARKERBOARDcoSUPandRESTAURANTBAR
