Dana Point's Battle of the Paddle this October 4th and 5th 2014.

Coming once again to our beautiful Dana Point, The Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle event will be held on October 4th and 5th, 2014!

Note this year, this event will be held at Salt Creek Beach not the usual Doheny Beach location from previous years. More parking, more races and more challenges with more spectators will be gained with this move!  Thanks to the more Western facing beach, Salt Creek picks up more swell in the prevailing conditions during October which will prove to make the racing more exciting for spectators and racers alike. In previous years Doheny has been pretty flat, which although fair and very easy to see who’s coming where, it’s not as exciting as a 6 foot set rolling through the pack! Last years event had over 1000 competitors, and with the extreme growth of stand up paddling as a sport, 2014 is set to break records.

Many vendors are expected, live hawaiian music, kids zone, Kind Yoga Session & Breakfast with Gerry Lopez and many other activities, and of course, award ceremonies.
