Red Bull Heavy Water 2017

Period: Oct 16 - Oct 31, 2017
Location: San Francisco, United States

Red Bull Heavy Water is the most extreme race on the APP World Tour Calendar, and indeed in the world, providing the ultimate challenge to APP World Tour athletes. Now in its second year, it is held in the high profile US City of San Francisco, the race starts at Ocean Beach, to the West of the City where the athletes will then make their way in and out of the surf to its northern most point where it reaches Land’s End.

It is then a journey around one of the most picturesque but also treacherous stretches of coastline to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and the mouth of San Francisco Bay. However, the challenge is still not over, as the athletes will have to come under the Bridge hugging Fort Point to surf into the inside Buoy, inside of the Bridge, before the final sprint to the finish, right off Marina Green, at the heart of the City.

With $50,000 prize-money at stake and the sport’s largest single victory pay out ($20,000 will go to the winner), Red Bull Heavy Water remains one of the most prestigious and dramatic challenges for the world’s very best stand up paddle athletes.

The event takes place between the 16th and 31st of October. For more details, please visit the official website.
