2018 Santa Cruz Paddlefest Gallery and Results

After a weekend of classic surf and tight competition between many of the world’s top paddlers on Santa Cruz’s iconic West Side, Maui waterman Zane Schweitzer and repeat Paddlefest champion Candice Appleby claimed overall titles in the SUP division at the 32nd annual Santa Cruz Paddlefest. With the sun rising over Santa Cruz Warf, contenders battled it out on Day One in the 10k/5k race, and on Day Two took to Santa Cruz’s famous break, Steamer Lane, for the SUP surfing division as well as surf divisions in wave ski, kayak and whitewater kayak in ample swell. In the end it was another successful year for one of the industry’s most beloved events, setting the stage to carry the legacy on strong into next year!
