Red Bull Heavy Water, the most intense stand up paddling event in the world, will return as part of the 2018 APP World Tour circuit, with the event window beginning on Monday, October 15.

Previous years have seen the course stretching 12km (7.5 miles) from Ocean Beach and finishing just past the Golden Gate Bridge, but 2018 sees the route flipped, with 36 of the world’s best athletes charging the start line near the Marina, battling the seas around Fort Point and Land’s End, with a race to the finish through tumultuous surf at Ocean Beach.

In this third annual event, a true test of physical strength, strategic planning and determination, athletes from the Men’s and Women’s APP World Tour circuit will be welcomed to the start line.
