The Waterman League

Posted: Updated:

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Turtle Bay Resort, the only destination resort on Oahu's fabled North Shore, is continuing its legacy as an epicenter for ocean sports as the new home of The Waterman League. Situated along what is known as the "seven-mile miracle" - the stretch of Oahu's North Shore between Haleiwa and Turtle Bay known for some of the world's most epic beaches and surf - the 840-acre resort's exclusive position provides the ideal home for the international ocean-sports organization.

The Waterman League has developed a multi-sport presence and is the official organizer of professional competition for the sport of stand-up paddlesurfing. The league's Stand Up World Tour, the official world championship tour for stand-up paddlesurfing since 2009, kicks off each February a few miles from the resort at Sunset Beach, while the league's inaugural Stand Up World Series Championship Finals, held October 12-14, 2012, will be anchored at Turtle Bay Resort with a lineup of activities including surf demonstrations, awards presentations, a youth clinic and closing ceremony.

With an office on the pool level of Turtle Bay, the resort will serve as the year-round home of The Waterman League's event and media operations, promoting participation and producing events and media around the world. To celebrate this new partnership, Turtle Bay is giving away an all-inclusive trip for two including five nights at the resort, air fare and stand-up paddlesurfing gear rental. The deadline for entries is Dec. 15, 2012. For more information and to enter, click HERE!
