2018 Panda Paddle

October 20, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Find your balance on the board and support keeping nature in balance for people and wildlife

On October 20, 2018 join the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in the first stand up paddle board (SUP) event benefiting our natural world. Panda Paddle is suitable for beginners on the board and experienced boarders alike. Experience the coastline as an individual or on a relay team. While attending Panda Paddle, enjoy live music, camaraderie, and renew your connection with nature!

What is Panda Paddle?

A day of camaraderie, connection with nature, music…and the most fun race ever. Panda Paddle blends a world-class stand-up paddleboard (SUP) race with a world-changing cause—protecting the natural world and all it gives us.

How It Works

First, select a race. Choose from a 10K solo course or a 5K course that you can do solo, or as part of a 2 or 4 person relay team.

Next, sign up to start raising funds for WWF. You’ll get a webpage to collect donations and lots of support to help you reach your fundraising goal. Once you’ve raised $150 or more, you’re in!

Panda Paddle Finish Line Festival

After the races are finished, stick around for our Panda Paddle finish line festival! Open to the public and powered 100% by solar energy, this festival will feature facepainting, delicious food trucks, and a live performance by San Diego’s very own Tristan Prettyman!

Stand up for the world’s waters, animals, and wild places

Individually, we get on boards. Together, we take a stand.
