The event is a fundraiser and includes individual stand-up paddle and prone races and relays for all ages, adaptive paddling instruction for paddlers with disabilities, SUP yoga, skills clinics and the Waterman Expo featuring board demos and the latest waterman technology, and more.

The Mongoose Cup is presented by the Sport of Kings Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps those in the surfboard manufacturing industry afflicted with life threatening and debilitating illnesses due to exposure to harmful chemicals during the surfboard manufacturing process.

The first 50 Sport of Kings event entrants will receive a Mickey Munoz autographed event T-shirt.

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available.

More information about the event can be found on the Mongoose Cup Facebook page and at www.sportofkingsfoundation.org.
