The 8th Annual Easy Rider SUP Cup took place on August 15 & 16, 2015.
The event featured a Race and Tour down the North Saskatchewan River on Saturday morning. This was followed by a BBQ and awards ceremony at Laurier Park in west Edmonton.
While the weather for the Race and Tour was a little on the chilly side – spirits were high at the BBQ and awards when The Easy Rider started to give away over $20,000.00 worth of prizes – all by draw. Everyone walked away with multiple items. In fact there was so much “swag” that once everyone had an arm load of goodies . . . all names were put back into the draw box and more product was given away.
For the final two prizes – everyones name was once again put back into the draw box and and inflatable SUP from Imagine and a race board SUP from Starboard where then given away by draw.
A social event at the Provincial Pub (next to The Easy Rider store) was held on Saturday evening.
Dave Kalama said he had seen all the SUP videos we had at the store – so he choose “On Any Sunday – The Next Chapter” – a motorcycle movie – for us all to watch. It was a great evening with stories of the days race and tour being swapped over good food and drink.
Sunday morning saw slightly better weather for the SUP Polo and SUP Fishing Derby – held at Hermitage Park Lake in North East Edmonton.
We had 21 Polo players and 3 paddlers in the SUP Fishing derby.
The SUP Polo was a great hit – with those that had never played before (including Dave Kalama and Jim Terrell) stating that is was one of the “funnest” things they had ever done on a SUP board.
After the SUP Polo and SUP Fishing Derby were finished – awards were handed out to the winning team – and then even more draw prizes were given away. Again, everyone left with a pile of goodies.
Thanks to everyone that came out and took part in the event. In total we had 123 paddlers take part in the weekend.
A BIG THANK YOU to all the suppliers that donated the product that was given away. They all support our events . . . so please support them!
Now that is has stopped snowing – and warmed up a bit – it’s time to get out and paddle!

We have received the latest installment of the Powell Peralta re-issue decks.
These are more limited that the last round – so come on by and check them out.
We have once again teamed up with Lib Tech to create some Ultra Limited production snowboards.
The graphics are again done by legendary skate artist Jimbo Phillips. It is our “take” on the classic Lib Tech Skeleton graphic, mixed with our Yeti that Jimbo has done for us on several other pieces.
Similar to last season we chose the Lib Tech TRS Model for our boards.
TRS stands for Total Ripper Series – and these boards will make you a Ripper for sure!
This year we also had some made in the Horse Power construction.
The Regular construction comes in 148N / 151N / 154 / 157 / 159 / 159W / 162 and 165
The HP versions come in 154 / 157 and 159
Big THANK YOU to Jimbo for the art work and of course to Lib Tech for being a company cool enough to do this!
