Battle of the Paddle Hawaii Outrigger Reef on the Beach “Stands Up” in Support of Hawaii’s First Stand-up Paddle Festival

Free poolside screening of “Blue Crush” and autograph session with Gerry Lopez and Roxy Team Riders set for Saturday, June 12

Outrigger Reef on the Beach is the hotel sponsor of this year’s Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle Hawaii, presented by Quiksilver Waterman Collection. Set for June 12 and 13 at historic Duke Kahanamoku Beach at Fort DeRussy Beach Park, the Battle of the Paddle is a stand-up paddle (SUP) festival and exposition that includes a series of races and demonstrations for all ages and skill levels. For the sport’s elite paddlers, it presents the greatest championship-styled SUP race, as well as the sport’s largest cash purse of over $25,000.  Photo of Gerry Lopez by Hauswirth in Surfer magazine issue #45/9
