I am starting to feel bad for the guys over at the APP Tour, things sure are not going their way in what was supposed to be an epic season start and re-launch in 2022. First we had the Fog-Protest-Boothy-Arthur-Saga in Santa Monica and now they can’t hold the London event at the initial dates mid August. Frankly London is experiencing a big strike so they had to move to September. The London event will now be hold on September 16. -18. following the ICF Worlds in Gydina and just before the APP event in Korea. Sadly the new dates are overlapping with the SUP 11 City tour.
This is the PR that just went out:
Due to the intensive strike action across all rail and underground in London that has been announced for the entirety of the London SUP Open’s scheduled event date, it has become impossible to keep to this original date. As a result, we have spent the past days working with Canary Wharf, TFL (Transport for London) and other London authorities to find a solution and we have managed to reschedule for the 16th – 18th September.
While it is frustrating to have to move the date at this stage, we believe that the new dates represent the best solution for APP Athletes falling between the ICF event in Poland (7th – 11th September) and APP event in Korea (23rd – 25th September).
APP Athletes will also benefit from the APP’s board transport solution that will now pick up in Poland and bring to London and then move onto Korea, before coming back to Europe for its events in Paris and Alicante in early December.
Meanwhile for UK residents and general participation, it will provide a hassle free solution that avoids the nightmare that industrial action has and continues to create on London’s transport system.

We look forward to seeing everyone in London and to making this an incredible experience for the entire APP community.
