The one of a kind standup paddle (SUP) racing event Red Bull Heavy Water has been cancelled for 2018 due to the lack of sufficient swell to hold the event. Designed to test standup paddle athletes’ skill in extreme conditions, the San Francisco event held by the Association of Paddlesurf Professionals (APP) is one of the signature stops on the APP World Tour.

Due to unfavorable swell conditions, Red Bull Heavy Water has been postponed until 2019. We thank everyone involved for their patience and understanding.

We look forward to bringing the world’s best male and female SUP athletes back to San Francisco in 2019 where they will battle a 12km course from Aquatic Park under the iconic Golden Gate bridge concluding with a surf battle and finish at Ocean Beach.
