This year in addition to SUP & Prone Paddleboarding, we are inviting our OC1 friends to join us! Our new location at the East Beach at Crissy Field in the Presidio National Park will make this awesome race even more exciting as we take on the San Francisco Bay!  Views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands will make this one of the most scenic and exciting races on the tour!  

Another $10,000 cash purse will be on the line so expect the world’s top paddlers to be battling it out for top honors.
