Races


PRO TECHNICAL This course has proven to be the most exciting in the sport. 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 20 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 but technical challenges will remain.

OPEN TECHNICAL The 2.4 mile, Open Technical Course features a diamond shaped course that will challenge paddlers’ ability to make precise turns and has been extended for 2017. All turning buoys will be outside the surf line. Competitors will go through the surf, complete two, 1.2-mile laps, then navigate in through the surf to the finish line. There will be a total of 12 turns with 7 left and 5 right hand turns. The top 16 finishers from both the Open Men and Women categories will have the opportunity to race in the Open Technical Surf Race on the Pro Technical course!

YOUTH TECHNICAL The 1.2 mile Youth Technical course was designed to challenge the ocean and racing skills of the intermediate level teenage paddlers, and advanced younger-aged SUP enthusiasts. Advanced teenagers are encouraged compete in the Pro Junior Division, where they can showcase their surf racing skills against more suitable competitors. This course features 6 turns. Competitors will start on the beach, paddle through the surf and complete a 1.2-mile lap, then navigate in through the surf to the finish line.

BEGINNER YOUTH SUPER GROM The Beginner Youth Super Grom race will take place in the Demo Zone with no waves to navigate. Course Officials will be on hand to assist participants through the horseshoe shaped course. The Beginner Youth Super Grom race if for new paddlers with little or no previous racing experience.

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. 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. The Distance Course features buoy 2, where the crowd will be able to see the racers’ position after the first of two laps.

TEAM RELAY: New for 2017 is the PPG Team Relay. Teams will be comprised of 4 members including 2 Pro’s, 1 Open, and 1 Jr competitor. At least 1 of the 4 paddlers must be a female, and each team will pick their own order. A Jr is anyone 17 & U that competed in the Pro Junior or the Open Youth Technical Race. A maximum of 20 teams will be allowed to compete on a 1st come 1st serve basis. The 1st paddler for each team will start on the beach and complete the 500M, horseshoe-shaped course, jump off their board, run through the finish chicane, and tag the 2nd paddler who is waiting in the designated Transition Area. Paddlers 2, 3, and 4 will complete the same course. The last paddlers will finish through the designated Finish Line.

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.
