The paddlers have spoken and we listened.

Once the final stroke has been taken and champions crowned at #PPG2018, the biggest weekend in SUP will close with a bang at the 2018 Pacific Paddle Games After-Party featuring the SUP Awards with doors opening at 6:30 on October 7!

While the SUP Awards has traditionally kicked off paddling’s biggest weekend, many paddlers requested that we have an after-party for the Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life. Well, we’re giving you what you want! The entire SUP community, including the sport’s top pros and leading industry members, will have a proper chance to cut loose and celebrate after a hard-fought weekend of competition and fun.

In addition to honoring the top paddlers in the sport during a SUP Awards video presentation (don’t forget to VOTE NOW), there will be live music, free food and a complimentary beverages throughout the evening.

In another exciting change for this year, everyone who registers to compete at #PPG2018 will automatically get a free ticket to the afterparty. For those who won’t be competing but still want to hang, we are selling general admission tickets for $25 pre-sale and $35 at the door.

The event will be held outdoors at Doheny State Beach (the same location for #PPG2018). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:00 p.m.

Parking at Doheny State Beach costs $2/per hour if you do not have a California State Parks pass. You can pay at the kiosks in the lot. Please follow all State Park regulations.

A portion of the proceeds from the Pacific Paddle Games After-Party ticket sales will be donated to support the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association (DSBIA), our official non-profit charity partner "dedicated to the protection of the park's beaches, facilities, marine refuge and its historical, cultural and social stories.” One of our generous event sponsors, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, will be matching the donation up to $2,500.

We'll see you at Doheny State Beach October 7!
