The Mission of the Lake Tahoe Paddleboard Association (LTPA) is to promote, provide, and support environmentally friendly human-powered  paddlesport activities in the Tahoe Basin.

Since its inception in 2009, the Tahoe Cup, hosted by the LTPA, has been a combined effort of participants, sponsors, and exhibitors who continue  to promote and enhance paddlesport activities and events in the Tahoe Basin. The proceeds from the Tahoe Cup benefit local non-motorized aquatic programs in the Truckee-Tahoe area.

The Lake Tahoe Paddleboard Association is a 501 (c) (4) not for profit organization.
