(KAILUA-KONA, BIG ISLAND of HAWAII) — Kona Brewing Company has been named the official beer sponsor of SUP magazine’s SUP Awards, to be held September 22, 2011 in San Clemente, CA. The awards will recognize the best paddlers, films, expeditions and philanthropic efforts in the standup paddling industry.

They got waves, they explored the Mentawais Islands’ little-known corners, but most importantly, they got to know each other on a personal level. Above all else, in this game we call standup, it’s about the people you meet. Each athlete on the trip brings a beautiful perspective to the sport.
