The British Stand Up Paddle Association Champions have been crowned in 2009. All the points from the events were totalled up, each competitor had to attend all four events to be eligible.
The competitors had to attend all four events and compete. It was a tough season with over 40 riders taking part. It started in May 2009 at West Wittering beach, a successful distance race was held, but the huge tide managed to flatten off the surf. Next stop was Gwithian Beach in June, the conditions were also not ideal, as it was windy, however a counting surf and distance round was held for all SUPers. Next we were on top the Gower in South Wales, a highly competitive distance race was held across Swansea Bay (and many new faces from the Welsh SUP scene turned up to compete), then despite the dire forecast a nice clean 2ft wave turned up on Sunday at Llangennith beach for the surf contest. Finally on to Watergate Bay in October 2009. The waves were really fantastic and allowed the 27 competitors to show their stuff. On the sunday a 5km distance race was held in the head high, clean surf. Finally the points were added up the winners awarded the BSUPA trophies and the glory !
