Stand up paddle surfing is one of the fastest-growing watersports in the UK. Riders stand on a large surfboard and use a single-bladed paddle to manoeuvre themselves through the waves
The British Stand Up Paddle Association (BSUPA) National Championships will be held at Watergate Bay for its seventh year on 10 and 11 October. Stand up paddle surfers from all over the country will compete for the winner-takes-all title across four divisions: Open Men, Open Women, U16 Boys and U16 Girls. .
Competitors are judged in a similar way to surfing competitions - on their style and how they ride the waves. There scrores however take into account the use of the paddle.

Fancy a SUP lesson? Our Wavehunters team on the beach can help you out....
The sea has had all summer to warm up and is currently at a fantastic 17 degrees! Why not book the kids in for a surf lesson? Or borrow some wellies from the entrance hall and take a stomp along Daymer Bay? We also have a whole host of spooktacular events in store for our younger Mini Moritz guests this Halloween, from face painting and haunted hotel tours through to treasure hunts, biscuit decorating and pumpkin carving. Grown-ups meanwhile will have an equally magical time, be it recharging your batteries in our Cowshed spa, the hammam steam room and Jacuzzi, or feasting on fine food (not a worm or spider in sight) in our acclaimed restaurant.
Friday 16 October - Sunday 1 November
Lose yourself in British maritime history, get hands-on in workshops, touch Ben Ainslie’s boat from the 2012 Olympic Games and appreciate one of only three natural underwater galleries in the world.
