33rd Annual Santa Cruz Paddlefest – Surfing Results!

Posted on

The 33rd Annual Santa Cruz Paddlefest did not disappoint! We had plenty of swell for a truly contestable competition in fantastic sunny conditions. This year the paddle surfing community was out in force cheering each other on and overall just having a good time. We all created a loving community atmosphere at this event and the amount of smiles throughout the weekend are a testament to that.

The level of surfing that we saw this year was off the charts! Well, just about at the top of the charts with some incredibly high scores being throw down by the athletes. Every year the level of surfing gets better and better and it is an absolute pleasure to watch. Who knows what next years competition’s surfing will look like and we are looking forward to see every one of you next year!
