Recurring Survivor Challenge
Description: A recurring challenge
Appearances: Philippines
San Juan del Sur

Paddle Out is a recurring Survivor challenge.    


Survivors would roll a series of balls down a lane on a wooden board to the end where there are several slots for the balls to land in. The first person to land all their balls in slots at the same time wins.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: Philippines, where the final 9 battled it out.  The race was tight the entire time between Skupin and Pete, but Skupin managed to finish first, winning individual immunity for the first time.

In Survivor: Cagayan, the final 7 battled it out for a spot in the top 6.  After leading for almost the entire challenge, Tasha won her third challenge in a row, with Woo trailing behind her the entire time.

The challenge appeared again as an Individual Immunity Challenge in Survivor: San Juan del Sur. The challenge was nearly identical to the one in Survivor: Philippines with exception of a small rise added at the end of the paddle. The challenge was won by Keith.
