EVES 2022 Stand Up Paddleboard National Championships
March 4 - March 6
Mt Maunganui will host the 2022 New Zealand stand up paddleboarding race championships, offering an iconic location and ideal conditions for all the various disciplines.
This event will see the best paddling athletes in New Zealand competing in the most challenging conditions, which will make for some fantastic spectator sport. There will also be events for less experienced paddlers; shorter distances in easier conditions, so that anyone who wants to have a go can enter. So whether you enjoy watching sport or taking part, there’s something here for everyone.
The event consists of three categories of racing; sprint (200m), Distance (15km, 8km, 4km and 2km distances), and Technical racing – in and out through the surf; a true test of one’s all-round paddling ability. Some athletes will compete in just one or two categories, others will take on all three, so as to be eligible for the coveted overall championship trophies.
