Dive into a day of action at the 31st Annual Paddle for Clean Water, proudly hosted by the Surfrider Foundation of San Diego County. On Sunday, October 1, 2023, at 8:30 am, join us at the iconic Ocean Beach Pier for an inspiring gathering of surfers, swimmers, and ocean enthusiasts united by a common purpose: to safeguard our ocean's water quality.

Take to the waves with hundreds of fellow advocates as we paddle (or swim!) around the Ocean Beach Pier, symbolizing our commitment to cleaner waters and a healthier ocean.
