A Candid Interview with #PPG2016 Female Champions Appleby and Anderson

The Pro Women’s division at Pacific Paddle Games presented by Salt Life provided some of the most dramatic standup paddle surf racing the sport has ever seen, due largly to the hard work of these two front-runners. Between the two of them, both female race division titles were claimed—Annabel Anderson with the Pro Distance title and Candice Appleby with the Pro Technical title and overall victory. The friendly rivalry between these two champions is no secret in the SUP community, and after the plethora of dramatic action among the women at #PPG2016, we were hoping to pick their brains about how it all went down in their eyes. Lucky for us, Tyler Callaway of FCS was onsite with a rogue camera and captured this unfiltered interview of the pros bantering like we’ve never seen on-screen before.
