Event description


Join us for The 4th Annual Butterfly Effect, Lake Tahoe paddle event for women! This year we are proud to join the Tahoe Vista Paddle Fest for a full weekend of paddle festivities, all located at the beautiful Mourelatos Lakeshore Resort!

This year's event will consist of a 3-mile paddle for all levels and ages, a beach festival, SUP Yoga, food & clothing vendors and more. Bring your sisters, moms, daughters, aunty's, and friends! It is a perfect day to celebrate each other, nature, health and happiness!

The Butterfly Effect is a global movement that started on Maui with Tatiana Howard and her windsurf friends. It landed in Lake Tahoe for the first time in 2014 with avid water woman and Tahoe local, Lindsey Felsch. They loved events and the community it bonded but didn't like the competitive aspect. The collaborative event message is teach, inspire, and promote women through watersports, learn about the local culture, give-back, all while being sustainably conscious.

A portion of this years proceeds will benefit B4BC (Boarding For Breast Cancer) a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation that advocates early detection and a healthy, active, and sustainable lifestyle as the best means for breast cancer prevention. B4BC empowers young people to make positive choices that promote lifelong wellness through outreach, prevention, sustainability, and support programs.

B4BC Believes in:

The power of education to inspire + impact positive and sustainable lifestyle changes
The long-term benefits of healthy, active and sustainable pursuits for individuals + communities as a whole
Supporting young women + those affected by breast cancer
Strength in unity + building, connecting and supporting communities
Ultimately celebrating life at every turn, both on and off a board!

Be The Effect you wish to see in the world!
