DANA POINT, California - The Haven Dana Point Harbor Hoot presented by Infinity SUP is a paddling event for all ages and abilities. Our mission is to advocate water safety, education, training, and recreation within the Dana Point Harbor. Dana Point is the epicenter of standup paddling; on any given day there are hundreds of paddlers enjoying the harbor. It's a marvelous place for a standup paddling event.

There are 3 events in the Haven Dana Point Harbor Hoot presented by Infinity SUP: the 3K Channel Scoot, the Haven Harbor Hustle, and the Board & Brew Baby Beach Bolt team relay. The course distances have been designed to be spectator friendly, accessible for new paddlers, and exciting for seasoned competitors. Some paddlers will be going fast and racing, but it's also an entry level event for people to participate at their own speed. Similar to someone participating a 5K running race that's not usually a runner. You can walk a 5K. For the Harbor Hoot, you can "walk" the 3K Channel Scoot course, or you can "run" fast.

The inaugural event in 2019 had over 150 participants and our messaging reached over 700 individuals and spectators. We brought together first-time participants as well as some of the sport’s iconic names in a fun and family friendly environment.

Originally, the event was to take place on October 9th, but due to the oil, spill we had to postpone until this Saturday, October 30th. The Harbor Hoot Committee would like to thank OC Parks, Harbor Patrol, OC Lifeguards and the Harbor Partners for allowing the Harbor Hoot to be postponed.

Thanks to all of our event sponsors who have been gracious through the postponement. We are excited to have Haven as our title sponsor, Infinity SUP as our presenting sponsor, and Board & Brew, who will be donating lunches to all participants. Other sponsors include: Performance Paddling, Quickblade Paddles, Ocean Academy, Coastline Facilities & Maintenance, TANDM Surf, Anetik, Westwind Sailing, Dana Outrigger Club, Nordhavn, 404, Hippo Stick, SUP to You, Lostwinds, and Inspire Chiropractic Health & Wellness.
