About Alicante SUP Open

The APP is proud to bring stop number 5 of the 2022 APP World Tour to the beautiful city of Alicante from the 9th - 11th December for what will be a weekend to remember. The event will take place at Playa del Postiguet, a venue that will provide a dramatic arena for the World’s best at the foot of the impressive Santa Barbara Castle right in the heart of the Old Town.

Beyond the unique cultural experience on offer in Alicante to explore this historic center, conditions on the water are ideal for paddlers of all levels, providing an accessible and competitive arena for all. In addition, the APP Pool will provide a very controlled entry point for newcomers to the sport, as well as the ideal venue for SUP Yoga and Pilates, while the festival zone will provide a social gathering point for paddlers and visitors alike. As a result, the Alicante SUP Open will really have something for everyone.

It is also worth noting that Alicante is home to one of the most vibrant up and coming SUP communities, with Paddle Clubs thriving across the region, all combining to create one of the most engaged young racing communities in Europe. It will doubtless provide some spectacular racing to close the calendar year in style and as the penultimate stop of the APP’s season and ideal lead into the climactic Final in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
