Competition & Event Format
The Naish ONE provides a stable, economical and competitive racing class for those that don’t want to spend huge amounts on equipment every year. You can measure your speed and abilities against other paddlers and not simply your equipment or check book against theirs.
Up to now, most SUP races have been long distance. One sees the competitors at the start or finish line with races lasting upwards of an hour. Although fun and a great discipline, watching long distance races can be a bit like watching the grass grow.
The new Naish ONE race formats are exciting, accessible, simple to set up and fun! All disciplines are easy to follow for spectators, the action is right there in front of everyone and it is thrilling to watch. There’s something for everyone, non-stop action on the water and events can happen in a day. Races can be local, regional, national and international.
