SupXross US Open Tour

Erie Sports Commission

Waterfront Weekend is back in Erie, PA with even more exciting water sports on Erie's bayfront, including the SupXross US Open Tour!

The 2019 HydroFlight US Open Tour will stop in Erie, hosting hydroflight competitions on Presque Isle Bay Saturday, June 22, with the addition of the SupXross Tour on Sunday, June 23. 

DSC 0143SupXross is stand up paddleboard racing on a closed course, bridging the gap between straight-line SUP races and whitewater SUP racing. Intricate turns in the race course are marked by buoys, which the racers will maneuver. As many as 20 paddlers will negotiate a series of pivot turns and straightaways in this qualifying style of racing that includes heats, semi-finals and finals. 

Registration for the SupXross US Open Tour will open in April 2019.
