The SUPSA SUP Racing Rulebook provides the administrative rules to guide event organisers and administrators in running an officially SUPSA sanctioned stand-up paddling (SUP) racing event. The SUPSA SUP Racing Rulebook also provides competitors participating in these respective events with the rules defining eligibility for entry as well as competitions rules.

The SUPSA SUP Racing Rulebook covers coastal and inland SUP events run in South Africa and applies international SUP sports code rules as set out by the International Surfing Association (ISA), as adhered to by Surfing South Africa (SSA). In addition, the World Paddle Association’s 2012 SUP Racing Rulebook was also consulted in preparing the SUPSA SUP Racing Rulebook.
