101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

San Francisco Giants Paddleboard Race Team

Season 8 of the San Franciso Giants Paddleboard Racing season is underway and swinging for the fences. 

We held our first race of the season this past week and it's our honor to be working with the Giants entertaining the fans once again. We have done well over 80 of these races over the years and can't thank the Giants, and their visionary marketing department, enough. A day at the ball park is all about about baseball but when the baseball is in pause mode, like in between innings, the Giants go out of their way to make it a fun family day filled with entertainment for all.

The Giants are blessed with what we think is the best ball park in baseball. What better way to leverage their San Francisco Bay location by using the water as part of the show and that's where we come in. While it's a lot of work, and requires skilled athletes to pull it off, it's also a ton of fun. 

monterey bay aquarium sponsored paddleboard races in mccovey cove

The event is sponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium which explains the fishy theme of our costumes. If you have never been to the Monterey Bay Aquarium we can emphatically endorse this as one cool way to spend the day. Monterey is the perfect Bay Area get away. An easy and beautiful drive that ends up in one awesome place. While the Aquarium is a lot of fun their efforts in conservation and preservation make it a day that helps our waterways at the same time. 

We hope you make it out to many games this year and if you think you have what it takes to join the race team please reach out to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
