Hawaiian Energy Sports - Battle of the Paddle Hawaii

Celebrate the modern waterman’s lifestyle at the Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle Hawaii. The Battle of the Paddle is a world-class stand-up paddle festival and exposition that includes races and demonstrations for all ages and skill levels.

Staged at historic Duke Kahanamoku Beach (Waikiki) May 14 & 15, 2011 the Battle of the Paddle is more than an ordinary paddle race. For the sport’s top paddlers, The Elite Race is an exciting championship styled surf race that offers the sport’s largest cash purse of $25,000.

The Battle of the Paddle also has an Open Age-Group Race, Distance Race (Hawaii Kai Run), Kid’s Races and SUP Relays. At last year’s event, the Hawaii Kai Run had the largest SUP field ever assembled in Hawaii with over 230 paddlers. This year’s races are promising to be even bigger, so come and be a part of history in the making. All races are open for entry.

Immerse yourself in local Hawaiian culture and community. Kanalu will be on site with Tom “Pohaku” Stone shaping ancient style surfboards and providing a cultural education exhibit. Na Kama Kai will also be there with their awesome ocean awareness program, keikis activities and organizing Keiki SUP races & relays throughout the weekend.

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.
