The SUP 11-city Tour over a total distance of 220km is one of the longest and most demanding SUP Races. It took place this year from Sept 7-11 in 5 stages in 5 days. It is a journey, an ultimate challenge through 11 authentic villages of Friesland (the northern province of the Netherlands). The tour is along the original waterways where ice skaters created this historical tour 101 years ago.
