Planning to hit the shores of Northwest Florida this July? If you will be staying with us in a Perdido Key condo rental the weekend of July 23, 2016, there is a must-attend event at the famous Flora-Bama that we know you won’t want to miss!

One of the best parts about going on a beach vacation is enjoying the sand, sun and especially some adventures on the water! The Gulf Coast Paddle Championship is a great place to get inspired to strike out on such an adventure and incorporates one of our favorite water sports – paddle boarding.

If you aren’t familiar, paddle boarding combines surfing and kayaking into a fun activity. You can lazily paddle along the waves, scoping out the marine life below you in the emerald green water near your condo rental in Perdido Key, or you can literally paddle out and surf to shore at racing speeds.

In recent years, paddle board racing has also increased in popularity and that’s what you will find when you hit the beach behind the Florida Bama from July 22-24, 2016. The races are open to all skill levels and ages, so don’t feel like you just have to sit back with a cool beverage and your SPF to watch. You can get in on the action. Just choose whether or not you want to race the 9, 4, or 1 mile course. There is a even a kids race!

This is the only race where you can say you “did it on the line and raced in two states”, so grab a board, sign up and enjoy your newest addicting water adventure during the Gulf Coast Paddle Championship in Perdido Key!
