Quicksilver Ta-Hoe Nalu Paddle Festival continues Saturday and Sunday

Date:

KINGS BEACH, Calif. — The Quicksilver Ta-Hoe Nalu Paddle Festival hits the crystalline waters of North Lake Tahoe Aug. 9-11 in Kings Beach, Calif. The family-friendly event features distance and beginner races, live music by Mama’s Cookin’, sand castle building contests and more than $10,000 in cash and prizes, as well as an attempt to set the world record for the most people doing yoga on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP).

Thousands are expected to attend the annual event, and will have a chance to win a getaway package that includes a semi-custom-designed Wet Woody paddleboard ($2,200 value) from Lakeshore Paddleboard Company, a Quicksilver Waterman Collection Gear package ($600 value) and a Nature’s Bakery snack/swag pack. In addition, Nevada-based Nature’s Bakery will sponsor an on-site Instagram photo booth and will be handing out samples.

The Wet Woody paddeboard was named after the drink of the same name available at Gar Woods restaurant. The 22-pound board is constructed with a hollow core.

“Being locals to the Reno-Tahoe area, we have innovated and created specific designs for the flat-water lifestyle,” Sean Adlao, president and CEO of Lakeshore Paddleboard Company, said. “We are very proud to support the local Ta-Hoe Nalu event and help spread the enjoyment of the fastest-growing water sport in the world.”
