Fernando Stalla, Brandi Baksic Win Battle of the Paddle Brazil



For the first time, Brazil brought the Battle of the Paddle (BOP) to its shores for a weekend of heavy competition. Following the same format as the original BOP held in Southern California every September, the event featured an Elite race, an Open Age Group race, a Long Distance race, a relay, and a Kids’ race. Competitors faced sizable surf and participants from around the globe, with big wins by Mexico’s Fernando Stalla and Brandi Baksic of Southern California.
