Fantasy football season is on. So we at SUP Magazine felt it was high time to give paddling fans a chance to lay it on the line by picking their favorite paddlers for standup’s biggest event—all to win a grip of rad prizes.
The concept is simple: Pick the 10 paddlers that you hope will ride you to victory, in both the men’s and women’s divisions, for the final of the elite surf race at the Rainbow Sandals Battle of the Paddle (remember, they have to qualify for the final in preliminary heats). Then tune in on http://facebook.com/standuppaddlermag for live updates Saturday, September 29th 2012 as the best go head to head in Dana Point, California.
Pick the winner and you get ten points, the second place finisher, nine points, third place, eight, fourth place pick is worth seven and so on in both categories. If you were to somehow pick every placing in both the men’s and women’s field, your sheer brilliance would be worth a whopping 110 points. WInners will be announced Monday, October 1 2012.

|1st place pick||= 10 points|
|2nd place pick||= 9 points|
|3rd place pick||= 8 points|
|4th place pick||= 7 points|
|5th place pick||= 6 points|
|6th place pick||= 5 points|
|7th place pick||= 4 points|
|8th place pick||= 3 points|
|9th place pick||= 2 points|
|10th place pick||= 1 points|
In case of a tie, winners will be chosen via random drawing.
–One second-place finisher nabs a GoPro Hero2 with all the goodies and a chance to be a POV star.
–Eight third-place finishers win a pair of Rainbow Sandals.
Check out last year’s finishers here, and watch the tide charts and surf forecasts to make your predictions. Just like picking your fantasy football team, knowing paddlers’ strengths and where they’ve placed throughout the year is a great way to insure good scores (check the back pages of http://www.supthemag.com for event coverage).
