running, and other formats of overcoming oneself in picturesque locations have long
become a trend of event tourism. We decided to project this onto the water. SUPs
have rapidly gained popularity as a type of active recreation on the water, and
SUP surfing competitions, or races on SUPs, can become a spectacular television
product. Last year, with the support of the Roscongress Foundation we held the Russian
Championship in Primorye Territory, and now we will present a new series of
international mass competitions at the EEF 2022. The SUP Surfing League will start in
Vladivostok. We are working together with other cities of Russia as well as other
friendly countries to host the next stages of the cup. SUP Surfing League can
become a centre of attraction to the Far East and has great international
potential,» said the president of the Russian Surfing Federation Ilya Vdovin.
