The inaugural show is historical on numerous fronts, concerning not only the caliber of the athletes but also the venue in which they reach the audience.

About the Wake Up Sup Show
The Wake Up Sup Show showcases some of the best talents in the stand up paddle world, giving full access to the audience to engage with their favorite athletes, both via a direct line (858.348.4495) and tweet feeds (#supconnectlive). The show came about during one of Candice Appleby’s visits to the Supconnect office, when Andre Niemeyer suggested to produce a live TV show on the web. An impromptu episode was produced that day and despite of the lack of promotion, some in the audience joined in with a phone call. From that, the idea of The Wake Up Sup Show came to life.
