13th Annual Surftech Jay Race


This is the 13th anniversary of the Jay Race! It keeps getting better every year! We gather to remember Jay Moriarity and paddle our hearts out in his honor! All proceeds will go to Santa Cruz County Junior Lifeguard Programs to purchase paddleboards and to provide scholarships in Jay’s name.
Participants get a goodie bag including; t-shirt, race jersey (long course only), Peet’s coffee, Clif Bars and other swag. Of course there is the challenging course, family-friendly atmosphere, raging after-party and raffle featuring surfboards, Paddleboards, Wetsuits and more!
