The event’s opening activity, The Wounded Warrior Project Paddle (around Harbor Island), is designed specifically to raise funds for this mission.

In addition, the Mongoose Cup will feature interesting and inspiring stand-up paddleboard clinics from experts in the sport. The clinics will be set-up at the event site and cover many topics including; paddling and training techniques, SUP racing skills, water safety, fitness, adventure paddling and SUP yoga. There will also be a Waterman Expo that includes many industry exhibitors.
