Beach Brella Sponsors the Pacific Paddle Games

Beach Brella was thrilled to support the SUP athletes in the recent SUP magazine’s Pacific Paddle Games. Located at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point. Beach Brella was honored to present all the female winners with their own, one of a kind, beach umbrella. The athletes showed their passion for SUP by setting themselves apart through their skill, determination, and love of the sport. Beach Brella was happy to reward their accomplishments and happily joined in on the beach festivities. Beach Brella also got to line the tables at the beer gardens. Providing sun umbrella shade.

Large Awards for the Winners

The Pacific Paddle Games event featured Technical and Distance SUP races (in both Pro and Open divisions). Also including Pro Junior and Youth categories, and Prone divisions. There was a whopping prize purse of $60,000, the largest amount ever awarded. The athletes were challenged to paddle through the surf and follow a three to six-mile triangle racecourse off shore.

Things Going on Besides the Games

Athletes, fans and neighbors enjoyed watching the exciting competition and there was also a nice amount of vendor booths to do a little shopping. Besides shopping you could take part in a SUP demo. Or you could  just chill on the beach during the action-packed event along the beautiful Southern California coastline. Beach Brella provided 100% UV protection for the camera men who photographed and videotaped the event. This  kept them cool under the shade and allowed them to capture amazing footage of the competition.

The Daily Giveaway!

For instance, a great way to give a little love back to the local community was by giving away a Beach Brella. We had a daily drawing at the Pacific Paddle Games event. As a vendor, the Beach Brella booth continually drew a crowd. So many stopped to admire the brightly colored, fringed beach umbrellas.  As the founder Shelley Arends shared her inspiring story and design inspiration. Beach Brella even joined in on the post-competition (for the athletes, not spectators) fun by sponsoring the Beer Garden. Who doesn’t love a cold beer with friends on a hot beach day?

Beside the fact that it was an amazing weekend at the Pacific Paddle Games. People like legendary surfer Gerry Lopez  came together to enjoy the ocean, celebrate a love of the beach lifestyle, and support the SUP community…all without getting a sunburn, thanks to Beach Brella. Because of all the effort by many people it was a winner.
