Round the Pier (or ‘Paddle’) is Europe’s biggest FREE beach and watersports festival. It runs every year on the beautiful venue of Hove Lawns – Brighton & Hove – and features the very best in water, street & urban sports, live music, kids entertainment, ‘have a go’ opportunities and much, much more.
Paddle has always appealed to surfers and watersports enthusiasts, but it seems we just can’t stop people wanting to get involved. With all the usual suspects, from surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, skating, windsurfing and free running, to all new sports like Surf lifesaving, land paddling, Kitesurfing and freestyle mountain biking‚ now everyone wants a piece of the pie.

Paddle around the pier is a charity event and as such i dont think cash prizes would be appropriate, I am talking with the organiser at the moment about prizes and various companies that can sponsor the prizes. What would people like to see? All ideas would be appreciated.
Cheers

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

That is such a true statement and highly applicable here, leave us not forget the other part "Give a man a net to fish and he can feed his family, then look for waders, hats, tents, waistcoats, fly rods etc etc. The same applies to BBQ I think, at least that's what "the food taster" reckons.............she is wrong.......I know I need all the bits I've got and more....MUCH MORE (like talent :oops: )
