Australian SUP Titles Return To Phillip Island

Surfing Australia has announced Phillip Island as the hosts of the Australian Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) titles, which will feature over 200 athletes.

Competitors will represent their state across multiple fields, including SUP surfing, technical and marathon racing, and ten-foot longboard surfing.

Additionally, the competition will run from 5-9 October, with 4 October holding the opening ceremony and administrative meetings.

Commenting on the championships returning to Phillip Island, SUP athlete, James Casey, said: “The SUP community is very welcoming, everyone is your mate and the Australian Titles is a great event that brings us together.”

“It’s the chance to catch up with a good crew and compete.

“I’m excited to get back into the power of the Victorian surf.

“I won my first Australian Title at Phillip Island in 2019.

“It’s very raw and there’s plenty of power in the waves, which I love.

“It’s not somewhere I go often but I love it and it’s an amazing place to bring the family too,” he said.

Surfing Australia CEO, Chris Mater, added: “We have some of the best SUP athletes in the world.”

“The Australian Titles is always an incredible event because we see their talent and progression really come to the fore.

“SUP Surfing and racing has so much room to grow as a sport and we’re excited that we can continue to provide this pathway and potential for past and future champions,” he said.

The announcement comes after Surfing Australia partnered with Harvey Norman.
