La Tranquila Resort and Spa in Punta Mita, Mexico, was the location of the first SUP-Polo World Games on May 13th and 14th, 2015, organized by Surf Mexico and Starboard. This unique Stand Up Paddle event was a huge success, especially because many competitors of the ISA World SUP Championship, that was held at the same time in Sayulita, came to participate and experience the new watersport SUP-Polo.
” This event was a blast. SUP Polo is one of the funniest things you can possibly do with a Stand Up Paddleboard.”
For those who have never heard about Sup-Polo, what is this sport actually about?
Stand Up Paddle Polo, or just SUP Polo, is a new sport presented by Starboard that combines Water Polo with Stand Up Paddling. It combines the fun of a team sport with Stand Up Paddling. SUP Polo games are full of action, fun and incredibly entertaining to watch as well. Apart from the fun factor its a good workout for the whole body.
For us, as kiters, it seems like the perfect watersport activity for non windy days!
