Beach Events – Mark Paaluhi

February 26th, 2013 by Kennedy

unique beach event in CaliforniaThis week’s event pro insight comes all the way across the pond from California, USA. Mark Paaluhi gives us the lowdown on some pretty unique beach style events that he’s been running all around the globe. This is pretty unique event idea as you’ll read:

What kind of events do you specialise in?

I specialize in beach events. I prefer to call them beach lifestyle events. Surfing, Stand up paddle, Beach volleyball, fitness (yoga or physical), beach soccer, bikini contest, music, & live music.

Puma corporate beach event

Are these held for corporate events to entertain staff, or mainly as public events?

I do various types, Entertainment, Professional, public events, team building events for corporate and vacation packages (primarily with Fiji Airways)

What does one of your events typically involve?

Fun in the Sun! Thats the goal. The opportunity for people to enjoy the beach lifestyle on the beach, lake shore and even at inland parking lots where we bring in the sand! Typically we have beach volleyball, Stand up Paddle and Music (DJ, live or both)

People enjoying their ocean entertainment

So that’s a ‘typical’ event for you, what has been one of your more ‘out there’ or even lavish events you worked on?

The most “out there” and “lavish” at times event would be my PUMA Laird SUP “Experience” Tour. We traveled around the world for 10 months hosting events in 10 countries during the Volvo Ocean sailing Race. It was challenging having to work in various countries dealing with religion, language barriers, foreign laws etc. Then also dealing with professional athletes, officials and celebrities.

Wow I bet! Hosting outdoor events can mean you are at the mercy of the weather, here in the UK that can mean you risk freezing temperatures, winds and rain so do you usually have a back-up plan for this kind of thing?

Weather can be tough. Typically, my events are held during spring and summer time. This helps to eliminate to cooler weather, but rain can be an issue. Most of the time we have tents set up. These can be used for shade or cover. With the hope that the rain will pass by soon. Wind is tough. You have to make sure you secure everything! Otherwise you could end up with a flying object that could be dangerous.

Keeping track of updated weather reports help to get a good idea if its going to be necessary to cancel events or postpone for a later start times.

If someone is thinking of hosting their own beach style event, what one thing should they definitely include to give it that genuine feel?

I would definitely recommend to know your potential participants and have a good DJ or band play. In other words music is key! Music can help you create the vibe you want.

Mark Paaluhi is the founder of Day At The Beach Events and is based on the beautiful Hermosa Beach in California. As he mentions in the his interview he travels the world hosting these events, splashing out his 5 years experience across the world. To see more photos check out his Facebook page here:

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw
