Dana Point, California ~ The Infinity SUP Dana Point Harbor Hoot presented by Board & Brew will take place Saturday, October 15 at Baby Beach in the Dana Point Harbor. A paddling event for all ages and abilities. There are 3 events: the 3K Channel Scoot, the Harbor Hustle, and the Board & Brew Baby Beach Bolt team relay. One day, three events. Pick one or do all three. The course distances have been designed to be spectator friendly, accessible for new paddlers, and exciting for seasoned competitors.


Dana Point is the epicenter of standup paddling; on any given day there are hundreds of paddlers enjoying the harbor. Our mission is to advocate water safety, education, training, and recreation within Dana Point Harbor. Last year’s event drew 175 participants and this year we anticipate over 200 paddlers. We brought together first-time participants as well as some of the sport’s iconic names in a fun and family friendly environment.    


Dave Boehne, from Infinity SUP, says about the Hoot,“The Dana Point Harbor Hoot is becoming the premier paddling event in California. Here in Orange County, Dana Point harbor is such a beautiful place to paddle, and it’s right in our backyard. Infinity SUP couldn’t be more stoked to support such a grassroots paddling event for years to come.” Infinity SUP, which is located just up the hill, is the title sponsor.
