WORLD RANKINGS: POINTS SYSTEM

The Paddle League World Rankings are built on a unique points system developed especially for stand up paddling. This system was created in 2013 by SUP Racer for the original World Rankings.

SUP Racer anlaysed the world rankings of 11 different professional sports to create a “base points table” that would fairly ranked and recognise the world’s best stand up paddlers.

The Paddle League World Rankings are a natural progression of what began in 2013, and the current model uses the same points system as the original SUP Racer World Rankings.

We award races with one of six point scores: 1-star (10 points), 2-star (20 points), 3-star (30 points), 4-star (40 points), “Specialty” (60 points) and “Major” (100 points).

Finishing positions that earn 10.00 world ranking points (or thereabouts) are highlighted to give you an easy comparison between the various event level. For example, finishing 18th in a major is the same as winning a 1-star regional event.
