Stand Up Paddle Boarding, SUP, is the rage around the world. It is said that Duke Kahanamoku was the first surfer seen on the waves with a paddle. In that spirit the SUP games began today at the Duke's OceanFest with the Honolua Ultimate SUP showdown presented by Boyd Events.
The Honolua Ultimate SUP Showdown was a series of races and surfing to make it into the "Showdown" race at the final. There were 16 men and top two Women in the final race. In the Race Final it was Connor Baxter, Riggs Napoleon & Kaeo Abbey, third. In the Surf Finals Mo Freitas, Aaron Napoleon and Bonga Perkins was 3rd.
