Vertra Team Paddler Scott Gamble gears up for Battle of the Paddle Hawaii
Honolulu, Hi (June 10, 2010) Vertra Suncare’s team paddler Scott Gamble is geared up to do battle this weekend in the inaugural Gerry Lopez Battle of the Paddle Hawaii Standup Paddling event. Over the weekend Gamble will compete in both elite races as well as the SUP surf team relays on Sunday afternoon. After a strong showing at the 2009 BOP in California, Gamble is excited to race on his home turf in the warm pacific waters of Waikiki.
Equipped with his new Joe Bark 12’6 SUP battle board for the elite surf race and the Bark 17’0 Molokai Unlimited SUP board design, Gamble will prove to be a competitive force in both races. “It is a special event, and I am excited Rainbow Sandals brought the race to Hawaii as well,” Gamble commented. The sports largest cash purse of $25,000 will be up for grabs over the weekend. However, for many athletes including Gamble, it’s not about the money, but rather the opportunity that Rainbow Sandals provides to race the best standup paddlers in the world at one time. The distance race will be held on the nine mile technical Hawaii Kai run. “I am looking forward to the distance race,” Gamble commented. “The elite race is exciting and hectic, but the distance race for me is a better race because that is the type of paddling that got me into standup. Picking a fast course and reading the ocean swells is what paddling is all about!” With strong winds forecasted, having home court advantage for many of the Hawaii local paddlers like Scott will be a big advantage.
Be on the look out for Scott and other Vertra athletes this weekend. Swing by to Vertra and Wet Feet tent to check out the latest in Vertra Suncare products and well as talk with Vertra’s athletes.
