The seventh annual Mickey Munoz Mongoose Cup is set for April 9 at Baby Beach in the Dana Point Harbor.
The Mongoose, Mickey Munoz, will be hosting the event, organized as a fundraiser for the nonprofit Sport of Kings Foundation, with proceeds benefitting craftspeople with diseases attributed to exposure to harmful chemicals during the surfboard manufacturing process.
The event offers everyone from beginners to professionals the opportunity to enjoy stand-up paddleboarding, learn new skills and see the latest technology associated with the sport of SUP.
The Mongoose Cup provides a great opportunity to immerse in paddleboard sports revelry, competition, culture and community, said Munoz, adding that the event offers something for the entire family, most importantly the camaraderie of racing with friends and SUP professionals.
The day will feature individual SUP and prone races and relays for all ages, adaptive paddling instruction for athletes with disabilities, SUP yoga, skills clinics and the Waterman Expo with equipment demos and more.
Event registration opens at 7:30 a.m. An awards ceremony will be held at 33:45 p.m. followed by an after party at Waterman’s Harbor Restaurant.
More information about the event, including a full schedule, can be found on the Mongoose Cup Facebook page and at www.sportofkingsfoundation.org.
