A what? A SUP - or a Stand Up Paddleboard. SUP is one of the fastest growing watersports in the world, and you have a chance to experience it.

In addition to the two competitions (SUP Cross and SUP Enduro) at the festival, we’re also offering free SUP demos for anyone interested in giving it a try. All SUP’s and paddles are provided by Appomattox River Company at the Canal and Waterfront RVA at the Tredegar Street Boat Ramp. Check in just below the vehicle access bridge to Brown’s Island or at the Boat Ramp. Volunteers will be on hand to teach you proper techniques.


You must sign a waiver and acquire a wristband before participating in any of our Adventure Zone activities. You can do this onsite at any of our zones.
