Welcome to the Games

The SUP world has been waiting for an event that is inclusive, fun, challenging and designed for all skill and ability levels. The PaddleFit Games has all of these elements. We are combining beach based challenges with SUP for an event that you do not want to miss. 


This was by far the most fun and challenging event I have ever done, as I strive to get better both mentally and physically. I can’t wait for the next one! Thanks for holding such a memorable event and something for me to strive to be better in!
