NEW YORK, NY - Less than 50 days remain until stand-up paddlers from around the world converge on Manhattan's waterways for the 4th Annual SEA Paddle NYC. As participants continue to register and train for the 28-mile charity paddle around Manhattan, organized by Surfers' Environmental Alliance (SEA), key figures in the surf, stand-up paddle and entertainment industries have come on board in support of SEA and the paddle's eight autism beneficiaries.

This year, avid waterman, extreme sports extraordinaire and environmental advocate Tom Jones is not only joining industry legends for the paddle around New York, but is in the process of making history leading up to SEA Paddle NYC. Jones is currently traveling the 2,800-mile stretch between Key West and New York City via paddle board to advocate for a plastic-free ocean. Now along the coast of Georgia, he should arrive in New York just in time for a celebration paddle around Manhattan with SEA's 200-plus participants. If successful, Jones will break his own previous World Record for paddling 1,200 miles along California's coast.

In addition, Israel "Izzy" Paskowitz, founder of Surfers Healing, one of SEA's charity beneficiaries, returns for a second time to paddle alongside seven-time Molokai Channel champion Jamie Mitchell. Joining them will be Extreme Surfing World Champion Garrett McNamara and actor David Chokachi, best known for his role as Cody Madison on "Baywatch." Surf legend Joel Tudor will also return for the second year in a row to paddle for autism and SEA.

After the industry greats complete their journey around Manhattan, they'll join paddlers, family and friends for SEA's Ultimate Beach Party at South Street Seaport's Water Taxi Beach starting at 3:00 p.m. The good times will continue as McNamara, Tudor, Paskowitz, Chokachi, Mitchell and Jones make their way to the third-floor viewing decks of the Seaport for SEA's biggest party of the year, the White Water Evening. With the Brooklyn Bridge as the backdrop, partygoers will celebrate the paddle and honor this year's beneficiaries with silent auctions, live music, an award ceremony and much more.

This year marks the first time SEA will host its renowned fundraising after parties in Manhattan. For more information on Surfers' Environmental Alliance and the 4th Annual SEA Paddle NYC, or to register for the event, please visit www.seapaddlenyc.org .
