On Sunday, September 27th we will celebrate the 24th Annual Paddle for Clean Water in Ocean Beach. The event draws hundreds of surfers and ocean enthusiasts to paddle around the Ocean Beach Pier in an effort to raise awareness about the need for clean water and healthy coastlines.
There will be yoga on the beach at 8:30am, and the event gets started at 9am and goes until noon. There will be free breakfast for all paddlers, guest speakers, live music, and a raffle. This year’s keynote speakers will be talking about how climate change impacts our coast. The event will be followed by an after party at Wonderland Ocean Pub.
Individuals are encouraged to help raise funds to support clean water initiatives by visiting classy.org/surfriderpaddle and making a donation or starting their own fundraising page for a chance to win a surfboard and many other amazing prizes!
This year’s sponsors included 91X, Clif Bar, Indie Yoga, Lazy Hummingbird, PuraKai, Shore Buddies, SurfScreen Organics, Cali Bamboo, and Wonderland Pub.
This year’s art was provided by San Diego artist Jarad Lazar. Thank you to all of our sponsors, contributors, and participants for making this year’s event possible!
