The event is a great opportunity to learn new paddling skills & techniques, checkout the latest in paddling & surfing products and enjoy the camaraderie of racing with friends.


This year's event dedicated to the Sport of Kings Foundation, a non-profit, charitable organization set -up to help those in the surfboard manufacturing industry afflicted with life threatening and debilitating illnesses.
