SupWA Events at Secret Harbour, WA
The Ultimate SUP DownWinder-DownUnder
The Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut is held along on the beautiful Peel Coast line where the famed, powerful and consistent West Coast Seabreeze blows perfect, un-interrupted runners like an endless conveyor belt.
In it's 6th year, the 2017 edition of the King of the Cut has some exciting additions:
1. The Half Cut - a shorter 10km race.This event will be held on the Sunday, the day after the main race. The Oceanside run is the first half of the famous KotC run, fantastic medium to large runners propelling you down the Peel Coast.
2. Open Board Class For Prize Money- With the popularity of the Unlimited Class and listening to feedback from the Pro Riders, we now have a Male and Female Open Board division* for the Pro Class. This means the first 5 male paddlers across the line and first 3 female paddlers, regardless of board length (14' or UL) will take out the prize money. An Unlimited board has yet to win the KotC, the technical nature of the course seems to even out the board lengths.
*The Female Pro Class will have two initial divsions - Unlimited Pro and 14' Pro. Soon as the UL Pro class registration gets 4 entrants we will combine the divisions - exactly the same as the men
3. Foiling Class - the KotC will open up a foiling divsion as a demonstation class for 2017. Whilst this division won't compete the Open Prize money (or the line honours KotC trophy), Enviroplumb has kindly put up a $500 prize for 1st Foiling Board across the line.
4. New Age Divisions - We have Female U/40 14' and Open Female Unlimited (not Pro Class). We also have Male O/60.
5. Outriggers For The Cut - Last year the organisers have invited Outriggers (OC1) to compete in the King of the Cut. The Outrigger community shares similar values to the SUP community and having this traditional craft involved in Australia's Premier SUP Downwind Event is a great addition. Welcome onboard Outriggers!

Divisions:
In accordance with the SUPAA Rule Book, there will be a Male and Female Pro Class that will compete for the allocated prize money regardless of age group. A competitor is classed as a Pro Class competitor if they have finished in the top ten of a SUPAA Pro event (Top 5 in this particular event) or if they elect to enter the Pro Class for this event (thereby becoming ineligible for their age group). This year the Pro Class is an Open Board Division, so both 14' and UL will contest the Prize money and overall King of the Cut Trophy.
All other competitors will register in their age group (still remaining eligible for a Pro Class finish). Age group trophies are allocated, but not prize money.
