      This was my first ever SUP race! It was the 7km race course in Ngaruawahia, Aotearoa (New Zealand) for the Koroneihana on the Waikato River. 3.5km downstream then 3.5 upstream. There was 64 single waka ama doing their race in their divisions too (7km-14km for them). Perfect day for a paddle!! Bonus was I came in under my goal time, didn't fall in and got a free tshirt. That river current and some of those eddys were strong too!! Had a great day.
