Hundreds of paddle boarders ride at Moscow festival

Paddleboarders had a chance to show off their costumes as well as to take part in a friendly race.

While some came to choose their costume based on looks or fun, others made a statement with their choice.

Enthusiasts sail on many lakes, rivers and the cities' water ponds.
