The opening ceremony will take place Friday 1st September at 14:00, right next to the Opera House in Copenhagen. Races are also starting there, but there are side events at Karma Kajen and Kanonbådsvej, too.

Try out windsurfing and SUP for both children and adults, or yoga and polo on the water. A line-up of DJ’s and bands keep you moving during the evenings.

On Monday 4 September, the whole SUP- and surfing circus moves to Vorupør on the West Coast of Denmark, better known as Cold Hawaii. Here are the big waves that make SUP and especially windsurfing so spectacular to do – and to see. The intoxicating mix of sports, leisure and music continues until Sunday, 10 September.
