The Battle of the Paddle California

Quiksilver Waterman Collection presents the Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle

A celebration of the modern waterman’s lifestyle, the Battle of the Paddle is a stand-up paddle festival and exposition that includes a series of races and demonstrations for all ages and skill levels.

The Battle of the Paddle is more than an ordinary paddle race.  For the sport’s elite racers, including Quiksilver Waterman and defending event champion Jamie Mitchell, it presents a championship-styled SUP race that offers the sport’s largest cash purse of over $25,000. For those just getting their feet wet in the world of SUP, it represents the ideal opportunity to learn about the sport, the fun, the equipment and the international community behind it.

WHEN: October 2nd and 3rd
