Dear ISA Members,

SUP RACING BOARD SIZE: Clarification of Decision
After examining the feedback from our ISA Members regarding preferred board size, the ISA has decided to continue the use of 12’6 SUP Racing Boards for 2017. The reasoning is as follows:

  • The results of the survey of ISA Members were inconclusive and do currently reflect a preference for 14’
  • Adopting 14’ would clearly favor the developed nations who have the means and resources to ship larger boards to DEN
  • 12’6” boards are more suited to the wave/ocean conditions in Nr. Vorupør, Cold Hawaii
  • The question of the best world-wide solution for the boards requires further study and the ISA will take active steps moving forward to review, monitor and consult the stakeholders as we look ahead to future WSUPPCs


  • The ISA and Event Host strongly encourage all teams to research and coordinate necessary shipment of boards as soon as possible.
  • Due to the restrictions with airlines, it is very likely that many boards will need to be cargo shipped well in advance of the event. Please look into options now.

We look forward to seeing you in Denmark!
