We’ll bring the biggest SUP competition of the summer to the “Seaside of Budapest”! The best riders and fans of the stand-up paddleboarding community will meet again in Hungary at the SUP World Cup in June. Three days, three categories, local and international talents, a total prize money of 6,000 Euros, an awesome party and a unique opportunity, because now ANYONE can enter the competition in the inflatable category!
The nearly one-hundred-hectare size and its lenghty coastlines makes the Lake Lupa the largest beach in Hungary, located on the border of Budakalász, 30 minutes from the center of Budapest.
Thanks to the continuous development of the venue, the available services are almost countless. The Kids Beach offers a variety of games and water activities for little guests, but the largest water adventure beach of Hungary is also located here. The wakeboarding track and diving centre are very popular, as well. As far as water sports are concerned; kayakers, sailors, SUP riders and surfers also love the lake. The beach also offers beach volleyball, football and handball, but the street workout park and teqball table are also worth a try. Anglers are welcome at the Lupa Fishing Centre.
Lupa’s gastronomic offer is also unique. From the well-known beach buffets to Michelin-starred restaurants on the promenade, you can enjoy the traditional “lángos”, boiled corn, or even artisanal burgers and other national cuisine.
Lupa Beach has already proven to be an excellent SUP venue, a good example is the “Loopa” SUP cup organised by the Hungarian Canoe Federation each year, which always attracts plenty of people to the lake.
The races of the ICF SUP World Cup will be organised in the suburban of Budapest, a 15-minute drive from the city centre. Lake Lupa is a natural sweet water lake, with calm and crystal-clear water. The sprint (~200 m) and technical (~1000-1300 m) courses will be set up along the main beach close to the public areas. Technical race may include portage. The long-distance race (~10 km) will cross the beach first and includes it consist of several laps in the Lupa Bay. All the races begin with a beach start. After the last buoy there will be a short beach run to the finish line. Course designs and distances may vary in case of bad weather conditions.
A total of gross 6000 EUR prize money will be divided between the long-distance, technical race and sprint race only for open category. The prize money will be equally split between men and women 50:50. PR
