- Braunton, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
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 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.
Marie Buchanan has been racing on the international scene since the first ISA World Championships in Peru and has qualified for every World Championships since, always improving on her performances and mixing it up with the world’s best. In Denmark Marie finished 14th in the SUP Distance Race and 15th in the SUP Technical Race. Marie has qualified for the Distance, Technical and Surf SUP disciplines for 2018.
Aaron Rowe has moved through the ranks having been British BSUPA Champion as an Under 16 year old and has maintained that status into the senior ranks being the 2018 British Champion in both the Technical and Distance race. In 2017, Aaron was ranked 47th in the World and also was 9th in the ISA World Championships in Denmark for SUP Surfing. Aaron has also qualified for the SUP surfing.
