STOKE & HISTORY AT THE SANTA CRUZ PADDLEFEST
This year marks the 30th annual Santa Cruz Paddlefest and I always look forward to attending this event in the lively waters of Santa Cruz, CA. The first time I ever competed at this event, I think I was only 16 years old. It was one of the first sup surf competitions I ever won!
“What makes it stand out as different from other comps because the sup community is able to mix in with the Kayak Surf Community”
There’s always something special about coming together for a competition at this spot and this legendary event is recognized worldwide by the Kayak community. This makes it stand out as different from other comps because the sup community is able to mix in with the Kayak Surf Community. In recent years this event is also becoming more recognized in the sup surfing and racing worlds too. As a matter a fact, this event is probably the biggest and most diverse competitive sup surfing event because it includes amateur to expert outside of the APP and ISA World Championships within the USA.
