This unique event features not only talented young “veterans”, but also many enthusiastic sup groms, who for some, will be competing in their very first surfing competition. Many of the young competitors already have names that are easily recognized while others will be new to the sup scene, but this is a chance for unknowns to become well knowns!

Although the $5000 prize purse is only for the Junior Pro SUP Surfing contest, many of the invites will be competing in their Age Group in sup racing as well. There is going to be plenty of action all day!  SUPFIESTA-Party-fundraiser-daphnes

Come meet the Junior Pros, and get their autograph, at our event Pre-Party which will be held Friday Night at Daphne’s California Greek restaurant in San Clemente.
