SAN CLEMENTE, California - Performance Paddling is proud to announce the 2013 Competition Team Roster.


Candice Appleby and Anthony Vela started Performance Paddling in January of 2012.  SUP Racing Clinics, Kids SUP Camps, Corporate Team Building SUP Events, and Private Coaching are among the services offered by these two SUP personalities. 


In addition, Candice and Anthony invited 10 U.S. Elite SUP Athletes to take part in the first ever Elite Youth SUP Racing Camp, and began the Performance Paddling Competition Team.  During the 2012 year, eight more athletes were added to the team.  


In January 2013, invitations/applications were sent to Youth SUP athletes that have shown dedication to the sport. However, this year the process of selecting the team was much more difficult as many young SUP athletes made quite an impact on the sport. 


Performance Paddling has expressed gratitude and thanks to all of the supportive parents who make it possible for these kids to be so amazing.
