It’s on! The Surfrider Foundation, Outer Banks Chapter is gearing up for their 25th Annual 1-mile paddle race. Year after year this event grows and supports Dare County Scholarships through a massive raffle – giving away all kinds of gifts from hotel accommodations to flip flops. Also to note, WRV has donated a grand prize: a 9’6″ longboard (BIG BLUE) worth $795 shaped by Ashton. A $5 raffle ticket will enter you to win the surfboard, plus a $2 raffle ticket will be available for purchase for a ton of other great prizes.

If you’ve never been, think of it as a fun, family friendly community based event where everyone can be involved. Don’t let the family friendly thing fool you however, some divisions in this race have drummed up some stiff competition (and bragging rights). Below is a list of the divisions that you can enter if you want to be a part of the race: (to enter, click on the division below).┬áRaffle tickets can be purchased ahead of time and don’t require you to be present to win.



The event is held each year at the Kill Devil Hills Bath House- Ocean Bay Blvd Beach Access in Kill Devil Hills (across from Stop & Shop). Race begins at 10:00am (registration begins at 9am and closes at 9:45am). For more information, click on the image below. See you there!
