DEC 7th - 8th
The APP World Tour will return to Paris for the prestigious World Championship Tour Finals on the 7th - 8th December 2019.
As the World's best congregate on the banks of the River Seine with 1,000 passionate SUP enthusiasts, history will once again be made in 2019, as Men's and Women's World Champions will be crowned at the heart of Europe's largest SUP market.
In 2018, it was a proud moment for France, as the APP World Tour celebrated its Final event of the season in Paris where the young French talent, Arthur Arutkin took not only the event win, but the World Title in front of a home crowd.
Meanwhile in the women's division, it was the American, Shae Foudy who took the honors, besting friend and team mate Candice Appleby in a sprint to the finish.
In 2019, just one season in, there are new faces making their presences felt on both the Men's & Women's Tours, with plenty of competition still to come.
Who will come out on top? Only time will tell....one thing is for sure: it will all be decided in Paris, with the dynamic and revolutionary indoor sprints inside the Salon Nautique and the legendary distance race down the River Seine providing the perfect backdrop.
Entries for the Pro-Am and Amateur divisions will open on Friday 13th September at www.nauticpaddle.com
