Building on the success of our previous years, the Orange Bowl Paddle Championship will feature nearly 350 racers and thousands of spectators. Local celebrities, paddle professionals, participants and spectators will join “littles” in the largest paddle clinic in the world. We will once again look to draw the world’s top elite competitors in paddle boarding as well as hundreds of recreational amateur participants.
The #OrangeBowlPaddle event provides four courses (Elite, Corporate, Recreational and Sprint). Winding its way in and around Virginia Key, the Orange Bowl Paddle Championship is a unique course.
