PRO TECHNICAL The Technical races for the Pacific Paddle Games will take advantage of the world-class surf race venue at Doheny State Beach, featuring laps in and out through the waves. THERE WILL BE A MAXIMUM OF 16 RACERS PER HEAT FOR ALL TECHNICAL RACES. The Pro Technical course was designed to challenge competitors’ speed, surf skills, and change of direction. The “bow tie” shaped course has a mix of right and left hand turns, and features two buoys inside the surf line. The two buoys in the surf line are positioned just off the beach in water deep enough to execute a turn, not directly in the impact zone. By having the inside buoys on separate ends of the course, the chance of collisions will decrease.

OPEN TECHNICAL The Open Technical Course features a diamond shaped course that will challenge paddlers’ ability to make precise turns. All turning buoys will be outside the surf line. Competitors will go through the surf making left turns on buoys 1, 2, 3 and 4, then complete 2 more laps around the course (for a total of 3 laps). On the last lap, competitors will make a right shoulder turn on buoy 5 and proceed to the finish.

YOUTH TECHNICAL The Youth Technical course was designed to challenge the ocean and racing skills of the intermediate level teenage paddlers, and advanced younger-aged youth. The advanced teenagers should compete in the Pro Jr. Division, allowing them more opportunity to showcase their surf racing skills. This course features 9 turns. Competitors will start on the beach making a left shoulder turn on buoy 1, 2, and 3 before heading back towards buoy 1. On the final lap paddlers will make a right turn on buoy 4 after rounding buoy 2, then make their way back through the surf to the finish line. The 10&U will complete 2 laps, while all other age groups will complete 3 laps.

DISTANCE The 6-mile Distance race at the PPG will consist of two laps on our triangle course outside of the surf near Doheny State Beach. The three-mile Distance race will consist of one lap on the same course and be available for Open and Recreational racers. From a water start, paddlers will head south 1.4 miles to turning buoy 1. After rounding buoy 1 with a left shoulder turn, competitors will head to buoy 2, make a left turn on buoy 2 and 3, then head south again to the southern-most turning buoy (1). On the second lap, competitors will make a right shoulder turn at buoy 4 and proceed to the finish line. 3-mile competitors will make a right shoulder turn at buoy 4 on the first lap and proceed to the finish line. The Distance Course features buoy 2, where the crowd will be able to see the racers’ position after the first of two laps.

PRO PADDLERS: IF YOU WANT TO COMPETE FOR THE BIGGEST PRIZE PURSE IN PADDLE SPORT HISTORY, YOU MUST DO BOTH THE TECHNICAL AND DISTANCE RACES. This also applies to the PRO PRONE and PRO JUNIOR divisions and their prizing.

OPEN class prizing will be awarded to age group winners from the Distance and Technical divisions.
