the standup world series is coming to CHICAGO
While we have a bunch of cool events happening in Chicago this year, I am super stoked about this one. The Standup World Series will be going off at North Avenue Beach the first weekend of July. My buddy Ian from Great Lakes Board Company is hosting the event and says, "We're so excited to have such a high-profile race coming to Chicago."
This event will be attended by the top racers in the world, so for local paddlers it's a rare opportunity to get on the water with all your heros. Here's the schedule:
