Registration for the 2018 Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life is officially open! The first 100 paddlers to sign up for #PPG2018 before July 31 will receive a $20 discount and a complimentary, premium towel from Salt Life.


The Biggest Event in Paddling is back for its fourth year at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California on October 6 and 7. Racers from across the world will once again gather in the most competitive racing spectacle of the year for a weekend of high action.

Whether you’ve never raced before, or are looking to step up your race game or want to compete against the best in the business, the Pacific Paddle Games offer a race for every level of paddler. That includes first-time kid paddlers: the Beginner Youth Super Grom Race in the Demo Zone caters to children that want to get out there and get their initial taste of racing in a safe environment.

Racers will also be treated to a new schedule of events: the Distance Race will kick off Saturday morning, leaving the high action of the technical racing to escalate the energy as the event progresses. The stakes will be high right from the beginning for those racers competing in the Combined Distance and Technical race category.

Of course, there’s plenty to do for spectators, families and beach-goers to enjoy as well. Try out a wide array of boards at the Demo Zone, take a yoga class in the Fitness Zone, enjoy a beer in the Beer Garden, shop from our exclusive lineup of vendors or just sit back under an umbrella and take in all the action.

Check out the schedule for #PPG2018.
