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!

Posted on Updated on


We’d like to give a warm welcome to our latest 2019 Santa Cruz Paddlefest sponsor, AT Overland Equipment.

We’re especially excited to have AT on site along the cliff at Steamer Lane during the event, showing off one of their latest products the AT Summit Camper.

AT offers a full service shop to prepare your vehicle for remote camping and your next long-range surf expedition. Their vehicle conversions department can provide you with campers, storage, water (hot & cold), heat, on board air, and living space, along with all the essential components like bumpers, suspension systems, body armor, recovery gear, power systems and long-range fuel tanks. AT’s experts can outfit your vehicle at their facility in Prescott, AZ, or provide you with the necessary components to do the work yourself.

A Little Bit About The AT RAM Summit Build:


AT’s show vehicle at the 2019 SCPF will be an American Expedition Vehicle (AEV) equipped Ram 2500 turbo diesel truck featuring an AT Summit Camper with fully self contained interior.

The Summit Camper provides a durable, insulated and lightweight wedge-style pop-up shell for today’s fuel-efficient pickup trucks, while still leaving room for individual customization.  The Summit sleeps two with enough interior room for one to stand when another person is in the bed.

The sleeping platform is out of the way when not in use, and easily pulls down when it’s time for bed. There is enough room between the sleeping platform and the roof to allow bedding to remain in place when the camper is closed, making total camper set up time extremely fast, truly under 30 seconds.

The Summit roof can be deployed with 100 lbs of cargo, like kayaks, SUPs and surfboards. The roof structure can also be walked on, which means it can serve as a great observation platform to get a good look at the surf conditions.

The honeycomb composite panels in the roof and walls not only provide insulation, but are impressively lightweight and offer incredible strength. For colder climates, when you’re out surfing frozen water in the mountains, there is an optional thinsulate tent liner to help keep you warm.

The AT Summit Camper is the ideal surf adventure home. Combine the awesome camper with a very thoroughly thought out, comfortable and efficient interior build and a super capably equipped truck and you’ve got the ultimate road tripping machine. AT Overland Equipment can build this dream machine for you, or help guide you in it’s creation and supply the top quality components required.
