At Brighton Pier this year on July the 7th and 8th there will be one of the biggest British surf events of the year going down, Paddle round the pier! And the best thing is its all for a good cause! Supporting the RNLI Lifeboats, Surf Action and Winstons Wish, there’s never been a better excuse to get your surf on.
Starting in 1996 by founder David Samuel it has over time become one of the most internationally recognised surf charity events on the globe! And still survives on its original goal of bringing surfers from far and wide together for a good cause.
Past beneficiaries have been The RNLI, Surfers Against Sewage, The Rockinghorse appeal, Surfaid International, Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, Whoopsadaisy, Surf Relief UK and The Teenage Cancer Trust.
After a lull in interest after David Samuel had to move abroad for work, it came back bigger and better than ever in 2006 and ever since its continued to grow and grow, with over 21 events taking place over the 2 days there’ll definitely be something for you, whether it be the 26 mile paddling marathon or the SUP Fun Race!
