Paddle Round The Pier Beach Festival 2019

Please find below information for press, media, PRs and others about the 2019 Paddle Round The Pier Beach Festival.

 

Key facts about the Paddle Round The Pier Beach Festival

  • The first event was held back in 1996 and organised by a group of local surfers wanting to raise funds and awareness for the charity Surfers Against Sewage.
  • The event is run every year by a group of unpaid volunteers. Help and support is also provided by our generous supporters and partners.
  • Competitors for some of the races have come from as far afield as Belgium, France, Brazil and Hawaii!
  • Only one dog has completed 4 paddles – infamous “Flip Flop” sat on the front of a longboard for two years, a kayak for one year and swam round another year!
  • The Paddle has raised over £300,000 for charity over the past few years.
  • The 2019 event is expected to attract in the region of 60,000 visitors across the weekend

Event attendance

So that we know who is coming on the day, it’s really useful if you ‘register’ in advance by simply emailing media@www.paddleroundthepier.com with your name, media you represent (or freelance for), your mobile number and how many are accompanying you (if applicable).

We will be able to meet you and arrange interviews, tours of the site etc.

Also we have a limited number of hospitality passes available that give access to the VIP area at the event. These passes will allow one complimentary drink, after which we ask you to make donations if you decide to stay for more.

Please help us by respecting the VIPs in this area – all requests for photos etc should go to Sophie Corbett or one of her team.
