We are happy to have Kristin Thomas to help us understand the mission of USA SUP as we are reading the vision on their website:
We will become the National Governing Body for SUP competition in the USA. We will engage, connect, and support athletes and organizers enhancing the competitive experience by clarifying event criteria, rules & scoring. We’ll expand attendance by reducing complexity and making participation simple and rewarding.
Build a community representative of our country’s diverse population and provide an opportunity to improve physical and mental well-being through participation in competitive, social, and educational SUP sporting events.
Advocate for education, safety, the environment, access to water and legislation related to and affecting the activity of SUP within the United States and represent the interests of those paddlers on the world stage.
