Overview

PaddleSplash Festival: 2017

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 Water Safety. To support this, we are hosting safety drills for Fire and EMT agencies on Friday. All weekend every kid that attends will get a FREE Personal Flotation device (PFD) from the Boating and Water Safety Agency!

We are also inviting Kayak and OC racers to join – the more the merrier!

And finally, we are excited to have Slater Trout – a Professional Stand Up Paddle Racer and Surfer, competing on the World Tour circuit, proudly representing The United States.
