Stand Up 4 Clean Water on Earth Day, 4-22!

Please join Los Angeles Waterkeeper on Saturday, April 22nd, as we celebrate our local Marine Protected Areas with a jam-packed day of paddle events, beach games, and our inaugural “Explore Your MPA” program!


The 6th annual SUP For Clean Water paddle race and marine festival will once again be held at the beautiful Paradise Cove beach in Malibu.

For the first time, the Earth Day event will feature a variety of opportunities to learn about, celebrate, and directly engage in our efforts to safeguard the most ecologically important areas of our oceans: Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).

SUP 4 Clean Water takes place inthe Point Dume State Marine Reserve, one of many MPAs along the California coastline, where fishing is limited in order to nurture aquatic ecosystems back to health. Our MPA Watch Program engages 300+ underserved youth and other volunteers throughout LA County in our boat-based outreach, education and monitoring efforts along our region’s protected marine reserves. Learn more here!

MPA Watch volunteers enjoy some rare down time.


This year’s paddle events include:

  • SUP Cross competition
  • Relay race
  • Kids races

After the races, paddle out to the LA Waterkeeper boat to hear from local marine science experts, learn to snorkel by the shore, or participate in board demos. Back on the sand, enjoy live music, drinks, beach games and win big in our raffle!
