Pacific Paddle Games to count towards APP World Tour as an honorary points event

There is no doubt that Southern California has established itself as a major hub for the Stand Up Paddlesurf community as a whole, from participation to industry, and has become a global gathering point for the sport each year in early October with the annual SUP Awards and the Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life.

As a show of respect to not only this significant region for the sport and the global gathering, but also this flagship event that has been a shining light in the sport for several years, the APP World Tour will attribute points from this year's Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life towards to the 2018 APP World Title.

While the event is not an Official Stop on the APP World Tour for 2018, given that formats and guidelines are in line with those of the Tour, athletes will be able to accrue points from this event towards the 2018 Professional World Titles on the APP World Tour.
