In addition to offering epic paddle shirts, hats, sweatshirts, jerseys, paddle pants, shorts and stickers, we work to unite our different paddling COMMUNITIES, help environmental CONSERVATION efforts (5% of all sales are donated to non-profits), and CONNECT all the various regions of our awesome state and the businesses who support what we love to do...paddle!
It doesn’t matter your experience level, your craft, or where you paddle. For Paddlers. By Paddlers. Cali Paddler!
News and Events
- Cali Paddler recently had the honor of visiting the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA, our recent 5% Paddle Pledge Recipient. We presented our check and donation that all of your purchases helped contribute towards, and toured the amazing facilities. So much good work is done here to rescue, rehabilitate, and release stranded animals. We were stoked to learn more and witness first hand the great work being done.
In honor of World Oceans Day, and moving forward, Cali Paddler is excited to kick-off a new challenge and program that aligns with our belief in stewardship and inspiring of others. One that many of you may already do, but we want to take it to the next level!

We know paddlers do some extreme things to hone in their performance and allow them to train at their best. Every so often we reach out to paddlers such as one of our Team Ambassadors Jordan to pick their brain as to what THEY do? Well, Jordan had something we were interested in learning more about. Both in how it affects him, and what it took to set it up in his home. So with no further adieu...
Oh, the glorious challenges of endurance racing! As any athlete knows, the human body can only perform for so long with no fuel before breaking down. In the outrigger 9-man season - the true endurance portion of the outrigger year, it's not uncommon to be out on the water for over 3 hours, and thus it is very important to eat wisely.
If you have never been out for a significant amount of distance, the lack of preparation can be a shock to the system. One of the major differences in a long paddle is that DURING the race you have a significant amount of time to rest, refuel, re-hydrate, and catch your second (or third) wind over the long event.
Paddler fueling preferences come in all varieties - which one are you?
- Change season. 9-man season. Whatever you call this amazing time of year for outrigger paddles, it marks the best part of the season in our opinion. And so we wanted to express our enthusiasm for all of you entering in to the dungeon of awesome because this part of the year is what truly makes you a bad-ass paddler.
Why? Because everything is fluid and you have to adapt and overcome. Traits that the best paddlers find themselves able to do. You have to be a pro out there and roll with whatever happens. What you might ask it so unique vs. sprints or long distance season? What makes it so fluid? Glad you asked!
- The SundayX3 Race series, also known as SundaySundaySunday, is entering its 5th summer. A three part summer series of races that has focused on the paddlers and their wants and needs vs. big corporate direction. The result is a family friendly, competitive, and well-organized race that keeps on getting better each year.
