Hey there this is Leslie Kolovich. Kristin Thomas from Laguna Beach California joins me today to talk about The Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of The Paddle that kicks off Sept 29, 2012. However, athletes from around the world have already arrived in sunny Southern California to get their boards into the infamous waters at Doheny Beach.
This event is the Mack Daddy of all SUP events, elite racers train and save to make the journey to battle amongst the best of the best. Kristin gives us an idea of what’s happening the week beforehand, and what to expect for the weekend. The event is packed with tradition with the roots of stand up paddling in Hawaii, a beautiful Hawaiian ceremony takes place to start the races. SUP Radio Show wishes all the best to event organizers, volunteers, and athletes! It’s sure to be another memorable event! You can follow the event as it is happening on the Rainbow Sandals Battle of The Paddle Website.
