    Paddle Is Upon Us!

    The legendary Paddle Round The Pier (PRTP) festival is just over a week away, the weekends antics will see thousands descend on Hove Lawns for the world’s biggest , all for charity FREE beach and watersports festival.

    If you don’t know about PRTP, summer of 1996 a small group of surfers decided to bring together the surfing community in a social seafront event which would raise money for charity at the same time. From the 50 people who attended the first “Paddle”, the event has evolved in to what is now regarded as the world’s largest free charity beach festival, with approximate visitor numbers of 50,000+ people!
