Duel Course

The Surftech Duel SUP/Prone Race includes a 2.7 mile short course race and a 6.2 mile long course race. The short course will take you on a trip from Cowells Beach to the end of the Santa Cruz Wharf, out the the mouth of the Santa Cruz Harbor, back to the end of the SC Wharf and to the beach at Cowells. Once you hit the sand, you’ll run a short beach run to the finish line.

The Long Course will follow the same path as the short course, however, after the beach run, long course competitors will hit the water again and race along the cliffs below West Cliff Drive headed out toward Steamer Lane. You’ll paddle through the channel past “Indicators” and round the buoy positioned in the channel at “Middle Peak”. Then it’s off to the Santa Cruz Harbor mouth again, back to the SC Wharf and to the beach at Cowells where you’ll hit the sand for one last beach run to the finish! The “ELITE” division is the mens and womens 12’6″ long course division only.
