It's Back! The Malibu Downwinder Returns

With a prevailing 10-20 knot west wind to help surf the 7 mile course from Mugu State Beach to Leo Carrillo State Beach, you'll be sure to enjoy the trip along this scenic stretch of Malibu's coastline. Come out on Saturday, April 30th and help support the Leo Carrillo State Junior Lifeguards!

A limited number of campsites are available for Friday April 29th and Saturday April 30th. Contact Gary Fortune at for details.

About the Malibu Downwinder

Without question, the Malibu Downwinder is among the best paddling events in California and my favorite race I've every paddled on a SUP. A true grassroots paddling event, one of the things that makes it so great is that it has never been hijacked by prize money and sponsors narrowly focused on enticing top talent to the race. Register in advance or at the beach and come out for an event that captures the true essence of what paddling is all about.
