Event Details

The South Bay Paddle long course race is a fun and challenging 15-mile prone “hands only” paddleboard race. The race starts on the south side of the Iconic Hermosa Beach pier and heads south along the beautiful coastline of Hermosa and Redondo Beach.  At Torrance Beach and the PV Beach Club, the race will head west along the majestic cliffs of Palos Verdes to the famous R10 buoy.  From the R10 buoy the course heads north mirroring the final stretch of the world famous Catalina Classic paddleboard Race course and finishing back at the Hermosa Beach Pier.  The South Bay Paddle is open to all prone paddlers.  Race Divisions include; Stock, 14ft, and Unlimited paddleboards and age groups for Men’s (18-39), Almost Legends (40-49) Legends (50-59), Kapuna (60 and above) and Women’s stock (12), Women’s (14) and Women’s (UL) . The South Bay Paddle is a great training paddle for Rock 2 Rock and is a qualifying race for the Catalina Classic Paddleboard Race.

The South Bay Paddle short course race is a fun 3 mile race for those not quite ready for the challenging 15 mile long course race.  The short course race starts 30 minutes after the long course race on the south side of the Hermosa Beach pier. The race heads south along the beautiful coastline of Hermosa Beach and makes a 90 degree right turn at the Redondo Beach breakwater.  From there the paddlers will head west approximately 1 mile until they reach the second buoy. There they will make another right turn and race back to the beach finish line on the south side of the Hermosa Beach pier.

This race is put on by paddlers, for paddlers and would not be possible without the support of the South Bay Boardriders club.
