About the Mongoose Cup
The Sport of King’s Mongoose Cup is one of the worlds most beloved and respected Paddleboard events, dedicated to promoting harbor safety and raising funds to assist board builders and water craftsmen.
The concept originated in 2008 as part of the Festival of Whales. As part of the Parks and Harbor Commission’s effort to increase safety inside the Dana Point Harbor, the Doheny Long board Association approached surf legend and harbor resident Mickey Munoz with the idea of event. The result was a Paddleboard competition named after Munoz’s moniker “the Mongoose.” An immediate hit, the event drew paddlers from all over the nation.
In 2014 the Mongoose Cup, broke off from the Festival to accommodate the large crowds and participant demand. Supported of the non-profit Sport of Kings Foundation, it became its own entity, a day-long family festival offering a wide range of competitions and races.
With a dedicated volunteer force, a legendary host and a strong supporting organization, the Mongoose Cup has earned its place as one of SUP community’s most popular and longstanding events, serving the active sports enthusiasts, promoting water sports safety and underwriting a great charitable cause.
