Organizers of the West Coast's top paddle-surfing contests are issuing a simple challenge to all paddle-powered athletes: Who's the Best in the West? The objective of the second annual Pacific Paddle Surfing Series is to choose the best paddle-surfer in the sports of waveski, surf kayak (either HP or IC), and SUP from all the events on the West Coast in the 2013/2014 surfing season. We will choose the best paddle surfer based on the highest scores of three out of the five contests set for the pacific coast surfing season. Contests with more surfers in attendance will get more points as it is simply more competitive. You will need to be in at least three events. The overall winner will be crowned in the last contest of the series at the Santa Cruz PaddleFest on March 28-30, 2014. Dave Boehne of Infinity Surf Boards of San Diego was the winner of 1012-13 season. Good luck to this year’s athlete in this grand display of paddle powered surfing.
