Taken from the UK by the Vladivostok SUP community at an event organised by Tretya Volna and Yana Ivleva (all Russian Federation), on 10 September 2017 the world record for having the most paddle boards on parade stands at 844.
To mark the inaugural UK SUP Fest an official attempt will be made on 28th August 2022 at Whitehaven Marina to bring the world record back to the UK.
Paddling round Whitehaven's historic port which dates back to 1634 paddlers will cover a distance of just over 1 mile, a distance stipulated by Guinness for an official attempt.
