Surfrider is pleased to announce the Third Annual Summer’s End Sup Classic which will take place on Saturday, September 7th at Esker Point Beach in Noank, CT. Registration will all begin at 9:00am.

This year we have added a 6-mile elite course to the event, along with the 3-mile recreational race, and a 1-mile non-competitive “fun paddle.”  Prizes will be awarded based on board size, gender, and age. In addition, the day will include a raffle, beach clean-up, music, games, and much, much, more!

The cost is $60 for the elite race, $50 for the rec, and $25 for the fun paddle.  If you’d like to join us as a spectator, food and the raffle will be available for $10.  All proceeds will be used to benefit programs that protect and restore CT’s waters and beaches.


This year we have a great group of sponsors and vendors supporting our event including: Action Sports of Old Saybrook, Aina Clothing, Alue Optics, Cape Cod Paddle, Collinsville Canoe & Kayak, F & P Construction, Gabby and Laird, Love Bottle, Ola! Natural Granola, Patagonia, The Stand Juice Company, STOKE Radio, Sun Bum Sun Care, Sweet Waterwear, Vertical Oar, Wavezcap, Whaletail Paddling, whatSUP CT, and the Whey Station Food Truck.  If you’d like to add your business to that list  please contact us at for opportunities to partner in this event.



If you are planning on attending the race and would like to help out with registration, timing, or a course marshal (on a SUP or Kayak) please contact Laurie Millo ( for more information.  All volunteers should arrive by 8:30 a.m. for assignments and will receive a participant goody bag, a race tee, and lunch.
