Saturday July 28th and Sunday July 29th Outdoor Gear Exchange, in conjunction with the Lake Champlain Maritime festival is bringing you the Vermont SUP festival on Burlington’s beautiful waterfront.  You’ll have the opportunity to try out boards from BIC, SIC, Pau Hana, and Red Paddle.  The OGE SUP demo will be open from Noon to 4pm on Saturday and from 12pm to 4pm on Sunday.  Rental boards will also be available if you’d like to simply grab a board and head out on the water for the afternoon.

Saturday festivities begin at Noon with SUP demos from OGE.   We’ll also be featuring classes with certified SUP instructor Brian Jessiman, as well as BIC One-Design races– the BIC One Design concept is simple: Fun, Friendly Competition on a level playing field. The race beings at 3pm. All Participants will use BIC Ace-tec WING boards in heats of 4-6 racers competing for OGE Schwag and prizes.  Sunday we will offer free SUP Yoga at 11am (advance sign-up needed) followed by four hours of free SUP demos.

Check out Outdoor Gear Exchange’s  Meet-up or Facebook page for more details and to sign up for SUP Yoga, SUP instruction, or the One-Design SUP races (advanced signup is not needed for the race, but will ensure your space).  SUP fest is weather dependent and events scheduled for Saturday MAY be rescheduled to Sunday if needed and possible.  Vermont SUPfest will take place at the coast guard put-in adjacent to the Maritime Festival.
