FOR THE ELITE: The Battle of the Paddle is an exciting championship styled surf race that offers the sport's largest cash purse of $25,000. Think NASCAR meets surfing, as racers battle it out on a multi-lap course that takes them through the surf and onto the sand for a short run.

FOR ALL PADDLERS: The Battle of the Paddle has an Open Age-Group Race, a Distance Race (Hawaii Kai to Waikiki), Kids Races, and SUP Relays. Last year the Hawaii Kai distance race had the largest SUP field ever assembled in Hawaii with over 230 paddlers. This year promises to be even bigger, so come and make history! All races are now open for entry.

FOR THE FAMILY: Looking to try SUP or simply learn more about the latest trends and technical products? Visit the Battle of the Paddle SUP Expo. Meet the world's best board, paddle and SUP equipment manufacturers to learn about their latest designs and innovations. There will be a rainbow of boards and paddles to demo at the event site. Na Kama Kai will also be on hand to conduct free Hawaiian ocean skills and education clinics for kids. They will also be organizing keiki (children's) SUP races for all ages and abilities of children. Find other stand up paddle events in your area.

SWAG: Everyone who enters the Battle of the Paddle Hawaii will receive a pair of commemorative Battle of the Paddle Rainbow Sandals, event tee, lunch and cool event swag. A special welcoming party and aloha concert for competitors will be hosted by Quiksilver Waterman Collection on Friday evening, May 13, featuring local musicians. Event proceeds will directly benefit the Hawaiian Community.

Whether you're racing for the prize or just want to get your feet in the waters of SUP for the first time, the Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle Hawaii is the perfect way to experience the rich tradition of Hawaii's original surf lifestyle. The event is dedicated to supporting Hawaii's youth and the local community with a portion of proceeds from the event going to Na Kama Kai.
