Statewide field for fes­ti­val

Geraldton Guardian - - Sport - Justin Fris

All is in readi­ness for the 2017 Ger­ald­ton SUP (Stand-Up Pad­dle­board) Fest week­end, which be­gins to­mor­row morn­ing at Sun­set Beach.

At­tract­ing com­peti­tors from all over WA, five sep­a­rate divi­sions will be hotly con­tested — open (men and women), over-40s and 50s (men) and ju­niors (un­der-18).

Ger­ald­ton SUP Fest co-or­di­na­tor Conny Duer­ren­matt said the event would be a great op­por­tu­nity for those who may wish to learn more about a dif­fer­ent wa­ter-based sport­ing ac­tiv­ity.

“For peo­ple who have tried surf­ing and (may have) found it too hard — but would en­joy a wa­ter­based ac­tiv­ity, stand-up pad­dle­board­ing is a great op­tion,” he said.

The brief­ing for day one starts at 7.30pm, with heats be­gin­ning at 8am.

Fi­nals will be held on Sun­day morn­ing from 10.30am.
