This event is Hosted by:

South Bay Boardriders Club

Paddleboard racing has been one of the fastest growing sports. The demand for races and the increased number of participants make this paddle one of the more popular events of the International Surf Festival. This years event will be presented by the South Bay Boardriders Club.


The course will be a water start which begins off the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier. Paddlers then paddle south parallel to shore, round the end of the Hermosa Beach Pier and finish on the beach just south of the pier.


Paddlers must provide their own paddleboards, however, as a courtesy, the L.A. County Lifeguards provide a limited supply of soft paddleboards the morning of the race at the Manhattan Beach Pier. These boards are available on a first come firt serve basis.


Event applications, race results, and event photos are available from a link on this webpage.
