Paddle Round the Pier is the largest FREE charity beach festival in Europe and runs every year on the beautiful venue of Hove Lawns (Brighton) featuring an exciting lineup of water sports – surfing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding (SUP) and kitesurfing to name a few. Paddle round the Pier also has a pawsome event for doggos – The Paddle Round The Pier Doggy Paddle where dogs and their owners take to SUP paddleboards for a 15-minute group paddle of 25 metres to attempt a world record for the most dogs (and humans on paddleboards).
To take part in Paddle Round The Pier Doggy Paddle you do need to bring your own board to take part in the event (the organisers may have some spare to borrow on the day but this is not guaranteed so get there early).
However, even if you’re not taking part this is a great event to watch and then enjoy the rest of the festival fun, see the festival timetable here with what’s on.
The Paddle Round The Pier Festival takes place on 06-07 July 209 with the doggy paddle taking place on 07 July at 11am – you need to be signed in by 10:30 and be on the beach by 10:45 to take part. FREE but please register here.
Please note: Dogs must be over 1 year of age and in good health. Any dogs that appear to be aggressive or stressed in any way will not be able to participate.
