Surfing & SUP Tournaments

Wrightsville Beach Attracts Top Ranked Surfing and SUP Events 

As one of the premier watersports destinations in the country and the pioneer of East Coast surfing, it’s a natural place to hold surfing competitions and stand up paddleboard events. There are pro-am surf fests and a Wahine Classic surf competition attracting all levels of female surfers. Professionals compete in a stand up paddleboard and surfing pro-am tournament with the largest prize purse on the East Coast. The Carolina Cup, held every spring, was crowned as one of the world’s five major stand up paddleboard races.

There’s something for every watersport competitor or spectator here to enjoy.
