SUP & Surf Session 2010 in Salida July 18th

Colorado Kayak Supply is hosting the SUP & Surf competition in Salida, CO the 18th of July.

There will be a 2.5-mile downriver sprint race and a River Board Surfing Comp at the best wave in the Salida play park. The registration fees for competitors are $15 per event or $20 for both. If anyone wants to compete and doesn't have a board or paddle, contact CKS at 719-395-8653 to reserve the gear.

You can come in to the store Saturday afternoon to pick up the gear and bring the gear back Sunday after the event. If you are comfy in the water, can swim, and have a PFD & a Helmet- you can compete; leashes are optional.

Registration starts at 9 am to the start of the race at the Recreation, Engineering, and Planning office that is adjacent to the top wave in the play park. To get to the registration table, park at the boat ramp and walk upstream on the bike path where you will see a registration booth.

We've decided to have our boards & paddles for rent for $10 a set. People can take turns using them so we don't run out of rentals. We'll have them in Salida, so just show up with you helmet, pfd, and game face on.

See ya there!

We've decided to include a demo section out at the race. For $5 you can get the board and all the gear necessary (helmet, PFD, paddle, and leash) to do a short section of the river.

So if you don't want to compete and just jump on a board come on down with a five dollar bill and a change of clothes!

Hey everyone,
Just wanted to let you know some last second details about the event this weekend. Registration is at 9 am to start of race.

We have decided to add on a $5 non-competitive demo. We will have all the gear for you, just bring in some a five dollar bill and come try out a SUP board on the river.

We just got a free keg of PBR for competitors and volunteers and are working on another one. So come pay $15 for one event, or $20 for both events and hopefully win some sweet prizes (look below) and drink some cold brew!

Prizes: We have some awesome swagg from PBR for the competitors -
PBR Tents, PBR Horseshoe sets, & PBR Belt Buckles. We also have Shred Ready helmets, NRS Pilot and Co-Pilot Knives, and a BUNCH of gift certificates, hoodies, t's, hats, stickers and coozies.

Hope to see ya out there!

The crew had a super fun practice run down the race course and a surf session at the office. Suping the Ark right now with 90degrees plus and 700 is a great way to cool off and be on the river. The race course is really straight forward and appropriate for anyone including beginners. The office wave is still a fun surf spot and it will be a really fun scene with PBR as a sponsor. I would encourage anybody to come up and participate and stay cool on this hot ass weekend.

Course is fun and safe. You can rent a SUP, if you do not have one, and paddle for the race for an additional $10. Be at registration no later than 10 am this Sunday. Incredible prizes ( tents, horse shoe sets, helmets, beer, etc.) too for those that race. Come join in and have some fun.

Thanks to CKS and especially Morgan for all of his work at the event. Also the Boat House. It was one of the most fun river events I have been to. Looking forward to next year's event. Great way to beat the heat in Salida.
