White Water SUP Fest is back! We’re gearing ourselves up ready for another thrill packed weekend on August 10th and 11th 2019 and can’t wait to tell you what we’ve got in store for you! 

Each year we aim to add new exciting elements to the event. 

The notorious SUPX White Water race will be held on Saturday 10th August. We will also have a new band joining us this year for the Saturday evening's entertainment. There will be an array of various workshops happening on the Sunday morning on flat water and white water tailored for all experience levels, so take a peak and simply add your place to your ticket when booking. More info to follow…very exciting!

The White Water SUP Fest is about gathering together with other like-minded paddle boarders and having a jolly good time on and off the water. Last years event took North Wales by storm and with 2019’s line up we’re in for a whale of a time. Although WWSUPFest began with a small group of gnarly white water SUP enthusiasts the event is open to anyone and everyone who is interested. If you have your own SUP or are looking to start getting into White Water Stand Up Paddle Boarding come along and see what it's all about!

Daytime activities will be held at Mile End Mill, the White Water Centre in Llangollen and evening activities will be held at the campsite in Glyndyfrdwy.

This event is not for profit, so the more people that come the more money we can put towards the event, e.g. showers/entertainment/workshops.
