The Great Britain SUP & Paddleboard team would like to ask you to consider sponsoring them on their journey towards and during the ISA World Championships. The ISA World Championships are in China from the 23rd of November to the 2nd of December 2018. The cost of getting the team and their equipment is expensive. It will cost each individual rider £600 for their flights, £300 for their accommodation, £200 for their board, $250 ISA Entry Fees and £150 for a Visa. This total comes to £1,450 per person. All of the team juggle their paddling with full time jobs or education.
The team has been selected from the top riders in Great Britain who battled it out for a place at the selection event at Sandbanks, Dorset on the 21st of July 2018. The team consists of 12 riders and a Team Manager. The disciplines for the ISA World Championships are gender equal and include: Distance & Technical SUP, Distance & Technical Paddleboard, SUP Sprints and SUP Surfing. The team includes some internationally established riders and some young guns eager to make their mark on the international scene.
