Lucky 7…

Welcome to Canada’s biggest (and funnest) Standup Paddleboard Festival, now heading into its 7th year.

The ‘Kal Classic’ features events for all ages, both recreational and competitive. It’s the kind of event that combines competitive spirit with the laid-back vibe of the Okanagan. Some events are just for beginners and intermediate paddlers while others will challenge even the fittest of athletes.  Bring the kids! – there’s plenty of fun for them too!

Goals for 2016:  To raise more than $2,500 for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake and to have 200+ people cross the lake on Sunday, September 4th.
