The Ta-hoe NALU is the oldest SUP event in the world and the first paddle festival to take standup paddle-boarding inland! Ta-Hoe NALU started the flat water movement and helped to create the inland market that is thriving today. The Ta-Hoe NALU Paddle Festival was also voted the Best SUP event in the country by Outdoor magazine.
“Take the most beautiful lake in the world, gather the best SUP athletes on the planet, mix in a little Aloha, and you have the perfect recipe for an event known as the Ta-Hoe NALU.”
The event takes place on Kings Beach over three days each August. Families are encouraged to attend for a fun day on the beach at the beautiful North Shore beach of Lake Tahoe. Spectate or participate in the races, stroll the vendor booths, eat and drink at the food trucks and beer garden, and enjoy the free outdoor music. In addition to the races, there are kids activities, performaces, and paddle clinics. The weekend ends with an awards ceremony recognizing top finishers.
