Performance Paddling's Afterglow Race Series


Performance Paddling’s Afterglow Race Series consists of three different Friday nights of racing in Dana Point Harbor. The goal is to provide a fun, picturesque race environment for the local and surrounding paddling community.


Each night will have two events: a 1-mile race and a 500-meter sprint course. You can race in one event or both, but the more times you race the more opportunity you will have to win fun prizes. Racing will begin approximately forty-five minutes prior to sunset and finish just in time to bask in the afterglow.


Pizza & prizes will follow each night of racing at the picnic tables on Baby Beach. 1-Mile Overall Champion, Sprint Overall Champion, and Overall Series Champion will be crowned for men and women at the final event.


Registration includes pizza and a chance to win some cool prizes.

  • $15 pre-registration

  • $20 onsite registration

Approximately three dozen paddlers came out on the inaugural night of the three event series on March 11, 2022. Michael Chiang took out the men's sprint course with a winning time of 2:59:98 while Candice Appleby claimed the honors in the women's sprint course with a winning time of 3:05:84. Chiang (10:12:44) and Appleby 10:18:29) also won the one mile race ahead of a competitive field of standup paddlers.
