Pretty light winds but still an excellent view of the race! Great edit and on the water footage makes this video pretty entertaining. Who’s on top of the Podium this year, Jake, Jacko, Beau, Kelly, a young Notto or will It be French Champion Puyo Titouan? For the Women, Angie Jackson and Karla Gilbert are sure to battle to Burleigh.

About the 12 Towers

With this being it’s third year in succession, the 12 Towers Ocean SUP Race has carved out an iconic figure of being one of the premier races in Australia. With the 2014 event set for February 8 & 9, the Gold Coast is certainly ready to turn on the glitter in the heat of summer.

The 14km Open Ocean Race from world famous Kirra Point to picturesque Burleigh Heads is proving to be a battle ground for the best in the business. Passing by 12 Lifeguard Beach Surveillance Towers (Hence establishing the race name) competitors will round an inflatable “turning buoy” approximately 150 meters from the viewing platform/pipe in the centre of Burleigh Beach, and make their final dash for the dry sand finish line.
