Overview

PaddleSplash Festival: 2019

The PaddleSplash™ Fest is a series of races produced by Nor Cal SUP Fitness for Stand Up Paddle, Kayak, and OC of all ages, sizes, and abilities.  The festival takes place on beautiful Lake Natoma at the Nimbus Flat State Park in Folsom, CA. Lake Natoma is a perfect place to paddle – with lots of sun and a long flat course so paddlers can go as fast as they can without a strong headwind.

Our theme for this year’s race is Safety and Fun. To support this, we are hosting lots of classes to help you and your family become better and safer paddlers. We are also inviting Kayak and OC racers to join – the more the merrier!
