The East Coast Paddleboard and SUP Surf Championships

The East Coast Paddleboard & SUP Surf Championships is the longest running event on the East Coast. Founded by Michael O'Shaughnessy in 1997, and now in its 16th year, the Championships will be held at the Ocean Deck, just south of the Old Daytona Beach Pier on Saturday, July 13, 2013. Included in this year's race day is the SUP Surf Throwdown and The Pink Paddle.

Be a part of Daytona Beach history at the 16th annual East Coast Paddle Board & SUP Surf Championship at Daytona Beach Pier this Summer.  You can participate in paddle races, the SUP surf competition, a swimming race or just enjoy the events and sites on the pier deck or beach.  Daytona is the origination of the East Coast paddleboarding as we know it today. In the late 1920s, Tom Blake, a nationally renowned swimming champion, first came up with a surfboard designed on an airplane wing’s spar-construction principles.  The tradition continues with the resurgence of the sport through paddle boarding here on the East Coast. And, the Old Daytona Beach Ocean Festival is where you will find the winner of the Tom Blake award for this year's race.
