October 2022 Paddle Boarding Events
Lake Jocassee Paddle Splash
The unspoiled mountain waters of South Carolina's premier inland paddling destination are home to the Lake Jocassee Paddle Splash, offering races for kayaks, surfskis, canoes, paddleboards, and other self-powered craft. Beginners and advanced paddlers are welcome, and are grouped by age and the speed of the craft to keep the racing fair. Choose between long (six mile) and short (three mile) loop courses.
Key West Paddle Classic
Welcome to the 25th Annual Key West Paddle Classic! As a Favorite Destination Race, we offer one of the largest paddle categories on the East Coast!
Great Alabama 650
Test your strength, endurance, and mental fortitude in the toughest paddle race in the United States. This epic 650-mile adventure takes racers along the core section of the Alabama Scenic River Trail, the longest river trail in a single state. From rushing whitewater to ambling river delta, the race will challenge even the most experienced paddler. This race is sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience that will not soon be forgotten!
Inspiration Point Downwind Race
Lake Michigan offers some of the best downwinding in the world, yet it is one of the most unknown and underrated locations! Join us this October on the forgotten coast. This will be a weekend long event held in Frankfort, MI. We have several different downwind routes mapped out between Arcadia and Empire to accommodate any possible wind direction. Additionally, there will be a few group paddles and hikes planned. With a weekend long holding period, and multiple routes to choose from, we should have optimal conditions come race day. You won't want to miss this event, so keep your schedule open!
Dana Point Harbor Hoot
Join us in beautiful Dana Point, CA, for a paddling experience for all ages and levels! Our mission is to advocate water safety, education, training, and recreation within Dana Point Harbor.
