Simply the best paddlesurf festival in North America.

Your River & Ocean crew will be there in full force!

The main event at the Lane has paddle surfers flocking to Santa Cruz from all over the globe to take advantage of one of Santa Cruz’s most fabled breaks. The Lane breaks along West Cliff Drive and can hold waves of double overhead+. The Santa Cruz Paddlefest has Steamer Lane as host to an elite surfing competition of Surf Kayaks, Stand Up Paddle Boards, and Waveskis. Each class competes separately doing dynamic maneuvers to earn points. Competitors will surf through several 4 man heats eventually leading up to the Finals Sunday afternoon.
