Well, what can I say? The 30th Santa Cruz Paddlefest was a success! I can’t believe the amazing conditions that we had for all three days. Our all star roster of competitors really put on a good show for us. To top it off, everyone was smiling (seriously, everyone was). I am thrilled and proud of the event that we brought to our paddle sports enthusiasts this year and I hope to see each and every one of you for next years SCPF!


All the best,

Mat Hoff
