Whether your clients are paddling for the prize or just want to get their feet wet on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP), the Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle is a great way to experience the rich tradition of Hawaii's surf lifestyle. Held from May 14-15, the event takes place at Waikiki's Duke Kahanamoku Beach and Fort DeRussy Beach Park. Elite athletes go stroke-for-stroke for a $25,000 cash purse, while amateurs take part in novice races and family and team relays. The SUP expo presents a rainbow of boards and paddles, demonstrations, souvenirs and free education clinics for kids. Competitors are invited to attend a welcoming party and live concert on May 13.
