Largest Prize Purse in SUP Possible Thanks to Presenting Sponsor Salt Life and Supporting Sponsors OluKai, GoPro and West Marine SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., July 27, 2015 – SUP magazine is pleased to announce the inaugural 2015 Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life will offer a groundbreaking $55,000 prize purse. The richest prize money ever offered in the sport of SUP racing is possible thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsor Salt Life, as well as supporting sponsors OluKai, GoPro and West Marine. The Pacific Paddle Games, which will be held on October 10-11 at Doheny State Beach, a California State Park, in Dana Point, is destined to be the world’s preeminent SUP race and draw all of the top racers to Southern California.
“We are thrilled to be a sponsor of this year’s Pacific Paddle Games that will feature the top elite athletes in the field,” says Salt Life President Jeff Stillwell. “Watching this sport grow as it has over the past few years plays right into what our brand is all about.”
The Pacific Paddle Games will draw racers from around the globe for an exciting weekend of innovative surf race formats and big prizes. But there will be something for everyone, with divisions for open, junior and advanced paddlers.
The Pacific Paddle Games festival area will feature the West Marine Demo Zone, the largest SUP demo area in the country, offering opportunities to trial SUP boards and gear, learn tips and tricks from the pros, and meet your favorite athletes in a fun and festive atmosphere for the whole family.
The 2015 Pacific Paddle Games wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors and partners. Big thanks to Salt Life, OluKai, GoPro, West Marine and California State Parks.
