Episode 4: Carolina Paddlin’

Join April from Carolina Paddleboard Co. as she travels west to the Golden State for the Rainbow Sandals Battle of the Paddle. Just because this episode is in Cali-forn-I-A doesn’t mean we don’t get some down home, country style hospitality. Chris Aguilar from QuickBlade took the time to show us around Headquarters. After checking out the gym and Hugo’s cave of paddles it was time to prep for Battle. The 2014 BOP was probably one of the most difficult races to date, and really challenged participant’s technical skills and endurance. Billy Miller and Wes Polly are some of the Carolina men that headed out into the madness. After some tough racing, April had the chance to tour the Hobie facility with Mark Johnson. This historic site was one of the first surf board shaping facilities and is still being used for its original purpose to this day. While there, Jason, Erik, and April’s boards were being shaped and we get to see the process!
Aloha Y’all!
