Running all day during the competitive events is the Largest Stand-Up-Paddle-Board (SUP) industry EXPO.
The main events, staged on the shores of beautiful Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, Michigan, include a recreational, all-ages, all-skill levels, 3.5 Mile Course Race located close offshore for spectators and on-lookers to view. The TC Waterman also boasts the longest true "open water" distance race- The 11 Mile "Down-Winder" which is open to the public and elite racers alike. New for 2013 is the 100M "Dash-For-Cash" Sprints. Walk through the over 50 booths representing local and national SUP organizations and companies and take advantage of local surf and paddle board shops, which will be providing free clinics, seminars, and demonstrations during the day’s events.
