Meet the Judges

Time to meet the #Paddle100 judges!

From Olympic medallists to Instagram Influencers... we’ve got some of the biggest names in paddling.

To create this first ever top 100 list of the world’s greatest paddling locations, our judges will be rating each nomination by:

  1. Beauty
  2. Tranquillity
  3. Excitement
  4. Uniqueness
  5. Accessibility

Plus you get a say when it matters most.
