Memorial Day weekend is coming up and what better way to kick it off than Friday Night SUP event!
BOTE Boards and Boshamps restuarant are teaming up to bring some weeknight excitement to the Stand Up Paddleboarding scene this Spring. The DESTIN TRIPLE CROWN of SUP will provide paddlers an opportunity to test their skills in solo races, team relays, and other fun themed events. The series will take place on from May to July.
“If you have been on, near, or around the water in Destin lately, there is about a 100% chance you have seen people out on a Stand Up Paddleboard, (SUP) says Magda Cooper, COO of BOTE Boards. “People love paddling, and even more so, they love getting together with friends to paddle, exercise, or just hang out and paddle for fun! Our goal with the DESTIN TRIPLE CROWN of SUP is to give this ever growing group of paddlers a monthly event to look forward to, as well as provide an experience that is uniquely Destin.”
Races will be held at Boshamps restuarant, located on the Destin Harbor. Each race will consist of an Individual/Solo 2 mile race-12’ and under boards, followed by a 1 mile, 4 man team relay with ¼ mile sprints, including buoy turns. (See course map below)

food is great! It is a perfect place to host the event”.
