The Neptunalia Challenge has just about everything you look for when considering a race in January and the day after Surf Expo…it’s close. You only have to drive 45 minutes to Melbourne, FL to make the race Sunday. Registration is open still, and looks to be a fantastic event to put on the SUP calendar. Flatwater, crazy marine life, and a 10 mile elite course called THE KRAKEN! Two mythical things that stir my emotions…bigfoot, and THE KRAKEN! Enjoy 2015’s first Paddle Dude Show with Paddling Paradise’s Danny Smith, your race organizer for the Neptunalia Challenge.
