Sure, the Battle of the Paddle was over a month ago, and it’s almost six months until the next one, but it’s always BoP Day as far as we’re concerned. And nothing says Battle of the Paddle quite like a bit of carnage…
Apart from perhaps photos of the Hammer Buoy chaos, the shorebreak gets more camera attention than any other part of the Battle. Even if there’s only 1-2ft waves, there’s still a lethal shorey thanks to the steep sand bank at Doheny State Beach.
The Dohney shorebreak has claimed plenty of victims, provides a boom for the ding repair industry every September, and always offers plenty of entertaining photos… So here are ten of the best from last month’s Battle of the Paddle. Thanks to Harry Wiewel, OnIt Pro, Christine Graham, and ZULU SUP for the shots.
