NEW in 2020! The "Get Fast" Adult Paddle Camps are a unique opportunity for paddlers to get in some dedicated training time, tune up their technique, and take advantage of the high-altitude training effect. Camps are held immediately prior to the Downwinder, and the Crossing Tahoe Paddle Cup races.
Race Series Overview
Get started in early summer with the new, innovative Chicane, where paddlers race over two laps of 4 miles each, and complete a required run through the "chicane" on the beach in between laps. Expect to go head-to-head with other OC1, SUP, surf ski, and prone board competitors all competing for a podium spot.
Mid-summer brings the whole family to the Grom Festival, our celebration of the next generation of paddlers with a weekend of racing and water games.
In the heart of the Tahoe sunny-weather season, the August Downwinder busts out courtesy of the gusty afternoon thrill-ride winds and swells.
And, of course, the perfect way to cap off your paddling season - experience the world's most beautiful endurance paddling race - the epic Lake Crossing - 18 miles of pure scenic bliss and determination.
Adults racing the Chicane, Downwinder, and the Lake Crossing compete for points available at each race towards the coveted Series Champion awards.
