Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race & Ocean Festival

The world famous Santa Monica Pier and the Honolua Surf Co. will kick off the summer of 2011 with the Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race and Ocean Festival, featuring paddleboard races, dory competitions, outrigger canoes, live music and a surfing, lifeguard and paddleboard “museum for the day.”

The all day event takes place Saturday, June 11, 2011 and is a benefit for Santa Monica-based Heal the Bay and its public marine education facility, the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Heal the Bay will receive a portion of net proceeds from the event.

The waterman “museum for the day” on the pier deck will feature antique surfboards, paddleboards, lifeguard equipment, including a fully restored Pete Peterson-crafted dory, as well as exhibits about the history of skateboarding and the historic pier. Paddleboard racing was a popular Santa Monica sport in the 1940s with two paddleboard clubs headquartered on the pier.

All races start and finish on the sand immediately south of the pier. The standup paddle and traditional or prone paddleboard races feature a 5.5 mile long course and 2 mile “fun paddle,” both of which take paddlers around the historic Santa Monica Pier.
