first paddling video game ever!

Okay, this is not quite 'Karel Jr Pro Paddler' by EA Games, but it's a fun little thing I did this summer. This is some what of a pre-release. Have fun wasting time with it, and post your highest scores! Oh and if it runs slow, well then I guess your computer is a bit slow... Instructions
  • The object of the game is to get as far as you can with 40 strokes.
  • To paddle just click the mouse on the game screen. Each click is one stroke. When the word 'stroking' appears your paddle is in the water, so I don't recommend taking another stroke before that one is finished.
  • If your VO2 (oxygen level) gets over 100% you can't paddle any more, so paddle long and hard and surf all you can.
  • Remember, it doesn't matter how long you take.
  • Conserve your strokes! you will go farther.
  • Click reset to play again.

852.25 on my second try. So simple but so fun. Actually helps you time the bumps and save your energy :D

#72 Sat, 09/06/2003 - 8:50am


1132.45 was my score on my 3rd try... no joke. :D This game is so simple yet so addicting, I love it.

#73 Sat, 09/06/2003 - 8:56am


Broke 2K again with 2002.76...but it was really a struggle. I wonder if anyone will ever break 3K? It seems almost impossible.

1592 -- I better stop playing this or I'll be sleeping out in the dog house.

#96 Tue, 11/18/2003 - 10:07pm


1329 :roll:

#97 Tue, 11/18/2003 - 10:50pm


:shock: Not to be a buzz kill for you guys... But maybe if all of you spent half the time you play this game on a real boat, you'd actually PADDLE FAST. Don't get too nuts with this thing, only your index finger and the size of your ass will increase...not the "distance" traveled.

#98 Sun, 11/23/2003 - 2:31pm


are you a little sour that you can not get high scores? I have to say that the game has done amazing things for my paddling skills, i am beginning to learn that surfing isn't only about paddling hard and fast, that it's all about the timing, keeping the hull speed consistently up... I kind of look at this game as a simulator, who learns to fly a plane without going in a flight simulator first? I also think the game is doing really good things for society in general, keeping the younger generation off the street, away from gangs and drugs etc..

#99 Sun, 11/23/2003 - 5:18pm


you forgot to mention a cure for cancer and curing world hunger....

#100 Tue, 11/25/2003 - 7:22am


Hui, luke,,, can we switch boats?????????????

#101 Wed, 11/26/2003 - 7:37am

ha, i'm not so sure that i want a stingray with a pair of broken iakos... you're welcome to buy a spica though, that's what they're here for, or talk to zach about demoing one at the next race

#102 Wed, 11/26/2003 - 9:39am


i got a score of 1461.44 i masterd the game i am 11 years old

#103 Sun, 11/30/2003 - 11:01pm


There's a bug in it though. All you have to do is nothing and if a wave comes along it can push you a little distance. Maybe a timer would solve that. 40 strokes in a certain time period. If you let the game run for a long time, you can easily get the high score.

#104 Wed, 06/16/2004 - 2:05pm

1289 in about 4 mins... cool game

#105 Thu, 06/17/2004 - 7:04pm

Fun game! 1136.4 was my first and best, seems as though I get worse at it the more I play.

#106 Tue, 06/22/2004 - 1:06pm

:mrgreen: awsome!!!

#107 Tue, 06/22/2004 - 6:35pm

1425.65 and completely addicted!

#108 Wed, 06/23/2004 - 6:24am

1706.87 on maybe 100th try. Good clean time-wasting fun for an ex-paddler who ain't gonna do the hard yards no more.

#109 Fri, 11/12/2004 - 12:48pm

[b]Man have to get use to it, thanks Keizo, now I really have another excuse to get out and really paddle, don't want to get fat sitting around playing the game.. only my left click finger gets a work out.. Fun all around..


#110 Fri, 11/12/2004 - 2:33pm

Hey Keizo I just broke my old record of 2375. New high of 2452. Has anyone beat that?

#111 Sat, 11/20/2004 - 3:18pm

gordon, that's absolutely ridiculous. that must be the all time high.. you must have lots of free time at work :)
anyway, I don't know when I'll ever get a new game out, maybe sometime in 2005.

#112 Sun, 11/21/2004 - 6:19am

[quote="keizo"]Some ideas planned for the future include a high score board, ability to fly the ama... adding a paddler on top the canoe. Perhaps different canoes, paddlers, & settings for the waves. Currently the waves are generated in a random position, but are the same height and speed for every game.
Anyway, try it out, let me know what you think.[/quote]

Good fun Keizo. Mahalo.
Happy Thanksgiving

#113 Wed, 11/24/2004 - 3:56pm

#114 Wed, 11/24/2004 - 9:08pm

#116 Wed, 11/24/2004 - 10:12pm

Really neat game, once you get the hang of it gets even better, real cool...

#117 Thu, 02/03/2005 - 5:21am

#118 Mon, 02/07/2005 - 6:31am

1650.61 is all I have to say.

#119 Sat, 03/26/2005 - 3:33pm

For some reason, i can't seem to find this game on the forum. Where am I supposed to find it?

#120 Fri, 04/29/2005 - 9:11am

It's the first post by Keizo in this discussion. Just click on the box where it says OCPADDLER 40 STROKES!

#121 Fri, 04/29/2005 - 9:47am

I had a serious breakthrough today: 2,048. Quite possibly the greatest game ever.

#122 Fri, 05/06/2005 - 12:43am


Well I was thinking 607 is OK, then I looked down the posts, ARRRH well keep on training I said to myself. "kinda just like the real thing"

Great fun had a blast, thanks.


#123 Tue, 05/24/2005 - 9:47pm

pretty cool game. just got a 1235.97...not bad

#124 Sun, 07/31/2005 - 8:50pm

I heard about this game less than a week ago and started playing it. It has become very addicting. Had a very low score of 3something the first time and am now averaging about 12something. My highest score is 1543. What is the highest anyone has scored????

#125 Tue, 10/18/2005 - 9:16am

#127 Tue, 10/18/2005 - 7:14pm


#128 Wed, 10/19/2005 - 7:36pm

hey keizo, hope you aren't to cold in new york. I saw some one put up 2539 so I went back to playing . It took a week but I just got 2569.14 Gordo :lol:

#129 Fri, 12/09/2005 - 5:28pm

975.994 from Brazil ...
Hucth Ho!
Great surf!

#134 Wed, 03/29/2006 - 3:45pm

Everytime I see a new post on this I get bummed out that I haven't updated it in almost 3 years now. If there are any hackers/programmers out there who might want to work on this for a fun project, let me know.

#135 Wed, 03/29/2006 - 4:10pm

Eh, it's addicting enough the way as it is :) Thanks for helping us fritter away those boring moments holding down the day job to support the paddling habit... Yeah, it could be more sophisticated, but who's complaining? (I mean besides the fact that I'm still trying to break 2000)

#136 Thu, 03/30/2006 - 8:40pm

What would be cool is if you could set up a game server so users can compete against each other. Or set up parameters so we could see who gets farthest the fastest. I wish I could program so I could help you out. Good surfing!

#137 Sun, 05/21/2006 - 8:27am


#138 Sat, 06/03/2006 - 5:00pm

Got a 720

#139 Wed, 06/07/2006 - 12:38pm
