RACE HISTORY: What started out as a friendly wager between two Los Angeles City Lifeguards in February of 2002, has turned into the Cold Hands Paddle. Every year the Cold Hands Paddle is set in the heart of the Southern Californian winter at the beginning of March when you never know what Mother Nature will have in store. See the current Cabrillo Beach Surf Report and water temperature!

The 2014 Cold Hands Paddle will be held on 3/2/14 at 8:30am!

Registration starts at 7:30am at the Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse. It's FREE to participate, donate if you would like to help a great cause!
