eNewsroom for: Wrightsville Beach Paddle Club

The Wrightsville Beach Paddle Club was set up by a small group of paddlers who wanted to foster the local, regional and national community of stand up paddlers. The idea was to take the events out of the hands of individual surf shops and brands in order open the door to all surf/sup shops and brands. The club is open to all paddlers who want to create and foster the local race community.
