Challenge yourself this weekend at the Quiksilver Waterman’s Festival

Looking for a challenge this weekend? We’ve got just the thing if you’re going to be in Southern California: the Quiksilver Waterman’s Festival.

From the mind of 10-time Molokai champion Jamie Mitchell is an innovative set of races for the paddle sports. Comprising of SUP, swim and paddle events, the Quiksilver Waterman’s Festival takes place in Huntington Beach, California on Sunday, August 14.

Three sets of races will test competitor’s water abilities in different ways. The survivor races feature a knockout format for only the elite. The classic races are a traditional race around a buoy and back. And the dash for cash is just that: a race for money with the winner getting the goods. Even if you aren’t up for the challenge, swing by and check out the activities going down in Huntington.
