Join us at the 3rd Annual Pro Watercross Watercross World Championships in Naples, FL... this will be the first SupXross World Championships! The world's best SUP competitors battle it out to become the first World Champion of SupXross.
Time TBD: "Practice Safe SUP" with *ACA WV State Directors Evan & Brooke Young > Learn about PFD's and Leashes on land, then practice board rescues and towing on the water!
*The American Canoe Association has been the Gold Standard in paddle-sport safety and instruction since 1880.
Time TBD: on-water & on-land SupXross course familiarization: Preview the course from atop the grandstand, walk/run through the course layout on land, and practice the real thing on the water with SupXross Co-founder & Managing Director Evan Young.
Competitors must be registered & checked-in to participate on the water.
Pre-Race Social: Come Saturday to see the sky come to life with HydroFlight! It's exactly what it sounds like...using the power of water to send a rider flying through the air at extreme speeds, spinning & flipping at soaring heights, and even diving through the water as effortlessly as a dolphin.
When the sun goes down, the flyers light up for a night show like you've never seen before! More Eco-Friendly than fireworks (litter-free) & more fun too! > PERFECT way to celebrate the Future of Sup-Racing with all your FRIENDS & FAMILY!!!
