Come join us on Saturday, June 7 for the 5th annual Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race & Ocean Festival presented by Tommy Bahama. Every year the event draws hundreds of competitors and thousands of spectators. The newest event added this year is the Tommy Bahama SUP Cross, a high-speed sprint paddleboard race in and out through the surf. Only the fastest paddlers advance to the next round until one is named the winner.
The event is free for spectators and fun for the whole family. Besides the races, there will be beach games and races for the kids, a lifeguard and surf history pop-up museum – plus live music and hula dancers performing throughout the day. Adults can cool off with a drink from the Tommy Bahama Rum Lounge or the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden.
Come celebrate decades of surf, paddleboard and lifeguard history. For additional information, visit www.pierpaddle.com.
