Our Races

We organize and co-host several Pacific Northwest paddling races. Our Summer Monday evening races in Ballard run May through September and are sponsored by KAVU. We raised $3k from 2017 proceeds which were donated to the Elks Scholarship and Vocational Funds. Our 3rd annual Halloween Race raised $800 also for the Elks Vocational Scholarship Fund. In 2018 join us for our Paddle, Pledge and Plunge on New Year Day race and our 5th annual St Paddles Day Race at Alderbook Resort on Hood Canal.

Race Details

" If you want to learn to SUP, Rob is exactly who you want to learn from. He is an expert, but more than that, he cares deeply for the sport and about people. He is concerned about safety and gives you very practical and useful information before going, and then in the water, he takes it one step at a time. You proceed to the next skill as ready. He is kind and patient and talks you through each step. As you are going, he teaches about the rules of the water, boating vs paddling right of ways, tides, currents, wind issues and how to spot any potential problems. On top of that, he gives great instruction on your paddle stroke so that you can go further without as much effort or pain later on." Carrie G
