The world famous Santa Monica Pier kicks off the summer of 2012 with the Santa Monica Pier Paddleboard Race & Ocean Festival, featuring ocean swims, SUP and paddleboard races,  dory competitions, live music and a surfing, lifeguard and paddleboard "museum for the day." The event is a benefit for Heal the Bay and its public marine education facility, the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium. Heal the Bay will receive a portion of net proceeds from the event.

The waterman "museum for the day" on the pier deck will feature antique surfboards, paddleboards and lifeguard equipment. Paddleboard racing was a popular Santa Monica sport in the 1940s with two paddleboard clubs headquartered on the pier.

The family fun happens all day on Saturday, June 9th, from 8:30 am to 3 pm. Don't miss it. For more info click here!
