Battle Of The Paddle 2012 @ Dana Point: 16 Days And Counting…

UPDATE: Check out the complete Battle of the Paddle 2012 RESULTS


Things are starting to heat up in Southern California, with only 16 days to go until the Battle of the Paddle 2012…

SUPracer is in town to bring you 24/7, wall-to-wall, ridiculously over-the-top coverage of the Battle of the Paddle at Dana Point. Plenty of pros are already in town and today we got a preview of the action. We managed to sneak in a morning SUP training session with three different World Champ and two Olympians.

Dave Kalama, Jamie Mitchell, Jim Terrell, Talia Gangini, Rami Zur and myself. Yeah, I was a long way behind… We were then lucky enough to get a guided tour of one of the icons of Stand Up Paddle racing, the Quickblade Paddles factory, with the Mad Scientist himself.

Things are only just getting started though, so stay tuned to over the next couple of weeks for complete coverage of the 2012 Battle of the Paddle. It’s gonna be big!
