Rock 2 Rock

Rock 2 Rock 2014

Rock 2 Rock is a fun, challenging 22-mile paddleboard race held on Father's day weekend in June every year, starting from Two Harbors on Catalina Island and finishing at Cabrillo State Beach in San Pedro, CA.

The race was started many years ago by famed paddleboard shaper Joe Bark and originally finished off the Palos Verdes coast near Abalone Cove; it continues now under the leadership of George Loren and is a major fundraiser for The Ocean of Hope Campaign.

Paddlers race solo or as a relay team, prone or SUP, and many athletes use this race to train or qualify for the Catalina Classic Paddleboard Marathon and the Moloka’i 2 Oahu Paddleboard Championships.  $5 from every competitor’s race fee, and all of the proceeds from the raffle, are donated to The Ocean of Hope, a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to support The Sarcoma Alliance.

Awesome goodie bags, pre- and post-race meals, a great finish line venue — all good reasons to come to race, volunteer or support R2R and The Ocean of Hope (O2H). Buy tickets for this year's raffle: a prone paddleboard by BARK Paddleboards.
