The Stand Up Paddle for Clean Water races in Malibu Beach were cancelled due to heavy wind.

Here is the official update from their Facebook page:  Due to strong winds, we ended this morning’s five-mile race early. While the beach festivities will continue throughout the day, we have indefinitely postponed the rest of today’s races.

Thank you to the LA County Lifeguards and Fire Department, as well as everyone else who has come together to make sure all our friends in the water return safely to shore.
