icw-paddlersWe’ve had a bunch of inquiries for the 1.9 mile Fun Paddle, which is a free social paddle taking place once all the racers have returned to the festival grounds. The Fun Paddle activity is a short course where newcomers to both stand-up paddleboard and kayak sports can mingle on the water for a relaxed tour in the estuary of Sunset Beach.

If you don’t have equipment, then don’t worry. If you are looking for inexpensive rental equipment then you can contact either Summertide Adventure Tours for kayak rentals and Surf Unlimited for paddleboard rentals. These Paddle Fest sponsors are offering discounted rates, so be sure to let them know that you will be at the Sunset Beach Paddle Fest. Rentals are only $25!
