The Santa Cruz Paddlefest has been going on for ages at this point and we’ve built up quite a community! The event largely runs off of volunteer power and we’re grateful to be able to fill those slots with our friends. If you are interested in helping the event out for a few hours we would love to have your support. All volunteers get a free goodie bag, an event t-shirt, and of course the everlasting love of the Paddlesports community. Feel free to sign up below or reach out to us if you have any questions about how you can get involved.
We sent an invite out to past competitors about two weeks ago and we are delighted to see the list of familiar faces signing up. Registration for the event is now open and we are welcoming everyone with a paddle in their hand to sign up for the 33rd Annual Santa Cruz Paddlefest!
You’ll notice a few new things that we have added this year. Our SUP community have been asking for a Master’s category and so we have split the SUP competition into Open and Masters. Folks who are aged 40+ are eligible for the Masters category and are still welcome to sign up for the Open if they choose. We are also adding a more kid friendly distance as a part of our race off of Cowells Beach. We don’t have all the details ironed out yet, but wanted to let you know that it is in the works!
Registration for Steamer Lane surfing events will close March 15th (two weeks before the event) for seeding purposes. If you have a buddy who hasn’t signed up make yet, make sure to give them some prodding so they don’t miss the deadline. We will keep registration for Cowells surfing events open until March 22nd. Online race registration will remain open until March 29th and day of race registration will be available.
See you in the line up soon!
Its live! 2017 participants have 1 week to sign up and then registration will open to everyone else.
