Paddle for the Planet

Adventure HQ took to the beach on Saturday as a sponsor and proud supporter of Paddle for the Planet (P4P). The event aims to unite paddlers around the world for a one day global relay event in an effort to raise environmental awareness and give something back to our oceans. Specifically, the goal is to address the conditions of marine conservations and the preservation of aquatic life.

More than 100 kayakers, surf skiers, stand up paddle boarders,  dragon boaters and other paddling enthusiasts joined in on Saturday morning to raise money for this great cause and enjoy a morning on the beach. Adventure HQ rented out kayaks for those without gear, with proceeds going towards Paddle for the Planet. Our crew participated as well and paddled alongside the supporters.Surf Shop Dubai ran Battle of the Paddle after the charity route and it was a great success with lots of enthusiast paddlers and adventure seekers competing..

Paddle for the Planet is a home-grown organization! The worldwide paddling event was first launched on the shores of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai last June by Wayne Randall, the P4P's founder, together with SurfSki champion Dawid Mocke and conservationist photographer Paul Hilton, who both represent the P4P as its ambassadors.
