The 9th Annual Easy Rider SUP Cup – presented by Starboard – is coming up fast. A MAJOR change this year is that ALL paddlers (both RACE & TOUR) will be shuttled to the STARTS of their events. The Finish is the same at the Edmonton Queen River Boat – but the Awards and BBQ will be ON the River Boat. Below is a listing of “check in” and “shuttle times”.
