2023 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championships > Les Sables d’Olonne, France!
The 2023 and 2024 editions will be the 10th and 11th time the ISA are staging the WSUPPC – and the dual hosting announcement reaffirms the strong international interest in this major SUP event. WSUPPC 2023 will be held in the picturesque bay of Les Sables d’Olonne on the western coast of France on September 24 – October 1. Meanwhile, Copenhagen, the spectacular capital of Denmark, will host WSUPPC 2024, which will be a SUP Racing only event on September 16-24, 2024.
Both editions of the annual ISA event will welcome the world’s top SUP athletes as WSUPPC once again demonstrates it is the premier global SUP and Paddleboard competition having crowned undisputed World Champions in the sport since the event’s 2012 inception.
As double-reigning ISA World Team SUP Champions, France will host the WSUPPC for the first time in the event’s history, whilst Denmark hosted the WSUPPC in 2017 with record participation.
France will look to continue its dominance in the team competition on its home beaches in Sables d’Olonne following strong performances from Benoit Carpentier and Melanie Lafenetre in the SUP Technical Racing at last year’s WSUPPC in Puerto Rico.
The Mayor of Sables d’Olonne, Yannick MOREAU, said:
“Les Sables d’Olonne is the Vendée Globe, it’s Adventure, it’s the love of the sea. A love shared by thousands of board sports enthusiasts: Surfing, Va’a, Wingfoil, Paddle… having a great time. It must be said that we are spoiled; from the large beach at Tanchet, from La Ch’noue to Les Granges… our spots are superb. Hosting these World Championships means asserting ourselves as a surfing destination. It’s planting our flag on the world map of must-see spots. This is our tourism strategy to attract enthusiasts from all over the world. It is to create the vocations that will make the champions of tomorrow.”

Lord Mayor of Copenhagen, Sophie Hæstorp Andersen, said:
“It is my ambition that we can offer sporting and cultural events every year to Copenhageners and our visitors. Events that bring us together. Therefore it is really gratifying that we will once again welcome some of the world’s best surfers at the World SUP Championships in Copenhagen. It is both an opportunity to show our fantastic harbor and clean bathing water to the world, and a great pleasure for Copenhageners who love water sports. It is crucial that the big events in Copenhagen also involve Copenhageners and offer a positive experience for everyone.”
ISA President, Fernando Aguerre, said:
“After the amazing success of last year’s event in Puerto Rico, we are very excited to bring our SUP World Championships to two great nations with a strong tradition in Stand Up paddling and surfing.
“With this announcement, the ISA reaffirms its full commitment to the global growth and development of this discipline, also at an Olympic level.
“Our message to the SUP athletes around the world and to the global SUP community is, we continue to support you and work hard to create a platform to showcase your talents and this fantastic sport.
“Together with our partners in France and Denmark, I have no doubt that we will see new records of participation and growth for the event and the sport in 2023 and 2024.”
