    I was just following up because Jim’s response says sit on top flatwater kayaks will be provided and Kameron’s says SUP’s will be provided. Just wanting to be sure I’m ready!!

      Hi Alison, sorry for the confusion. We will only be providing sit-on-top flatwater kayaks, stand-up paddleboards will not be provided.

  2. Jim March 15, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Are only standup paddleboards provide, or will standard kayaks be provided with race entry fee?

    • USNWC March 18, 2014 at 12:13 pm

      Hi Jim, sit on top flatwater kayaks will be provided to registrants. Participants have the option of bringing their own self-propelled water crafts, however, they are responsible for transportation and securing the water craft at the flatwater dock.

    • USNWC February 24, 2014 at 9:26 am

      Hi Brenton, if you would like to use a tandem kayak, please provide your own. Separate registration is still required. Hope to see you both out here.

  4. Chris February 9, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    Is the paddling portion of this race done by kayak or SUP or either?

    • USNWC February 11, 2014 at 9:10 am

      Hi Chris, you may use any kind of non-motorized water craft for this race.

  5. Kameron January 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    If we are unable to bring our own water craft, will one be provided for us?
    Thank you!

    • USNWC January 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm

      Hi Kameron, stand-up paddleboards will be provided during the Amphibious Duathlon.
