All Ages

Santa Monica Pier kicks off the summer with a celebration of beach life on the pier, in the water, and on the beach.

Tracing its roots back to the 1930s, Santa Monica Pier paddleboard races are some of the first in the world. Santa Monica Pier 360 offers epic competitions through a variety of disciplines on sand and sea, while also providing a memorable day of family-friendly entertainment.

There are many ways to participate: Short Course Paddle, Long Course Paddle, Elite Races, SUP / Paddleboard Knockout, Ocean Swimming, Volleyball, and Skateboarding. Those not looking to compete can join in on the festivities and enjoy front row seats to this incredible athletic performance.

On the Pier Deck and beach, participants and spectators can enjoy the Beach Festival featuring live music, Polynesian dancing, food, Beer & Spirits Garden and a one of-a-kind Museum of Beach Culture, featuring surf & skate history from the past 100 years.

Saturday starts off with a Hawaiian blessing on the beach at 7am, competitions begin at 8am;  Sunday's activities start at 9am.  (The schedule has all the details.)
