[VIDEOS] Relive Every Single Battle Of The Paddle Elite Race

Check it out: Video footage of the Elite Race from every single Battle of the Paddle.

We’re just a few days away from the 5th Annual Rainbow Sandals Battle of the Paddle, so we figured it’s as good a time as any to look back at the action from the past few years. Even though this is only the 5th year of the BoP, there’s actually been six Battles already (4x in California and 2x in Hawaii).

There’s everything from the first ever Elite Race back in 2008 (when half the field weren’t even paddling race boards) right through to the complete coverage of the 2011 event. If you’ve got a solid hour or two to kill check out all the action below… and of course keep following all this weekend for LIVE coverage of the 2012 Battle of the Paddle.
