Anyone who would like to sell their used surf, kayak, paddle boards and equipment are encouraged to bring their wares to sell, for free, to this annual swap meet. Several local surf shops will be participating in this event as well.
For some added spice, SuperFun Eco Tours kayak outfitters and What SUP Paddle Board outfitters are hosting a kayak/paddle board race. Equipment is provided for those who wish to race and registration includes food and beer. Beer is provided by Evolution Craft Brewing Company, a sponsor of this event. Registration is $20 and is a donation to the Maryland Coastal Bays Program.
The race event is open to anyone and is formatted for a team of 2 individuals. Anyone who is under 21 years of age and wishes to compete must be accompanied by an adult. Bring a friend and celebrate the beginning of a great Ocean City summer and support our coastal bays.
First prize for both the kayak division and the paddle board division will be a tour and brew tasting at EVO Brewery for a party of 6! There are also cash prizes for second and third places as well as prizes donated by Quicksilver and OC Surfcam.
EVO Brewery will be launching Evolution’s seasonal summer bear, Summer Session Ale, at this event. Entertainment by the Chester River Runoff band, one of Maryland’s hottest bluegrass bands, will be provided.
Registration opens at noon. Paddle board races will commence at 2 pm and kayak heats will follow when the paddle event is complete. You can register online at the Fager’s website or by calling Sandi Smith at 410-213-2297 (ext. 107). Good luck, paddlers!
