The Stand Up World Series Finals at Turtle Bay is the Grand Finale for the World Championship Season, the culmination of 9 grueling months of racing in all four corners of the world as the World’s Best descend upon Oahu’s Fabled North Shore for final showdown of the year.
The topography at Turtle Bay provides the perfect arena for this prestigious World Championship Final, with the ultimate sprint racing course to the west of the property, lining the shoreline and running through the surf at ‘Pool Bars’ surf break. The racing is intense, and provides a spectacular sporting showdown for on site and online viewers to watch from all over the world as it all comes down to the wire for the World Championship Title at Turtle Bay. And, of course, Puka Patch will be there!
