PaddleXaminer™ is a veteran owned publication covering paddle sports based in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2015, PaddleXaminer is the paddling community’s source for news, feature stories, evaluations of popular gear and more.
Exploring the world through paddling is our motto. We actively seek out new adventures throughout the year paddling the Pacific Ocean and inland waterways across the American West and beyond. Surfski and standup paddling are our core paddling disciplines, but it is fair to say we dabble in just about anything and everything you can paddle. We can be found charging the line down Colorado’s scenic whitewater rivers, chasing downwind bumps offshore in the Pacific Ocean, or simply kicking back and catching a few waves in Southern California.
