What is set to be one of the biggest SUP races of 2013, the Battle of the Paddle Rio, has been postponed. The event was due to happen on April 5th, 6th & 7th, but has now been moved to October.
The event is definitely not cancelled, it’s just postponed until October. The decision was only just made and the official announcement went straight up on the official BoP Rio Facebook page.
We’re going to chat with the organisers this week and give you more details on why this happened, as well as what sort of fun we can expect in October. It’s a major bummer that this happened (especially if you already booked flights), but hey, it’s Rio… and it’s the Battle of the Paddle… how can it not be fun? → READ MORE
We stumbled on this short clip of Jay Sparky Longley (Rainbow Sandals supremo and founder of the BoP) and Gerry Lopez talking about the Battle of the Paddle Rio. In case you missed the news last week, the Battle is heading to Brazil in April 2013.
Not much meat in there but it’s still cool just to hear the words from Sparky and Gerry themselves (and as we promised, we’re gonna bring you every last bit of news about the Brazilian Battle of the Paddle ;-)

As we mentioned the other day, the Battle of the Paddle is heading to Brazil.
Now you can check out the preview clip for the 2013 Battle of the Paddle Rio. There’s not a whole lot of new stuff in there, it kinda just looks like a tourism ad for Rio (which it pretty much is). But hey, it’s the Battle of the Paddle… and it’s Brazil… I get the feeling we’ll be posting anything and everything related to the BoP Rio over the next six months :O → READ MORE
