The pinnacle of the racing season is upon us with only a month left until the Rainbow Sandals Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle (BOP). The 5th annual event will be held September 28 – 29 at Doheny State Beach with open, elite, sprint, long distance and kids races, as well as an expo and demos throughout the weekend. BOP will also have SUP yoga instructors on site holding Indo Board SUP yoga classes and a kids zone will be open all weekend for the groms. This year registered competitors will be invited to participate in an attempt for two Guinness World Records: "World's Largest SUP Race" as well as "Most surfers riding a single wave" (currently 110 surfers in Cape Town, SAF, 2009). Check out the 2012 teaser and 2011 recap…
