Want to test your paddling skills against local and visiting SUP fans, or just enjoy one of the most scenic on-the-water courses in the central Outer Banks? Then you’ll want to make sure that this engaging event that’s designed for sports fans and water lovers is on your upcoming OBX vacation itinerary.

SUPtastic is hosted by the Kitty Hawk Surf Co. and is a fun race that takes place in the heart of Manteo – one of the most picturesque towns along the OBX coastline. Stand-up paddleboard aficionados will take to the water on a 3 or 6 mile course that launches from the downtown area, and which explores some unique corners of the local landscape. Embark on the triangular course to discover the famed Roanoke Island Festival Park from a waterfront perspective, or enjoy a more challenging cruise by heading into the Shallowbag Bay, where the course veers from a protected canal to the open waters. Engaging for everyone who loves an excuse to get on the water as well as a little friendly competition, SUPtastic serves as the perfect opportunity to enjoy one of the most popular watersports on the beach with a host of other SUP fans who adore the Outer Banks as much as you do.
