The Cold Hands Paddle 2016

RACE: The Cold Hands Paddle draws paddlers from all over Southern California who brave the ocean waters off Cabrillo Beach, in San Pedro, CA  to race what some call The Official Start to the Paddling Season!

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!
