Final Two Events on the SUWT Officially Canceled

Unfortunately, SUP Surfing’s Elite League Season has approached the end this year, as it has shortened to three contests for men and two for women. Waterman League officials announced that the Huntington Beach Pro would be the final surf event of the year and that the European and Moroccan events were cancelled.

World Championships for the surf side were decided in Huntington, where Izzi Gomez claimed her second world title and Caio Vaz his first.

Waterman League founder Tristan Boxford announced that investment is the main reason behind cancellations: “When you’re going to make a major change forwards you have to sacrifice short-term to get to the long term. It’s a five-year plan and it will allow us to grow in the long term instead of taking short steps like we’ve been doing.

Basically, there are a lot of big things happening, we need to keep our eye on the ball and push it over the line. Third party changes have been a thorn in our side these past few years. We’re making a small sacrifice now for a big gain in 2016 and beyond.”

We hope to see new and exciting events added on the agenda in the near future and hope riders are not as disappointed as we are.
