Those of you who have raced in the Lake Murray Paddle Classic know that our event benefits the South Carolina Special Olympics Paddleboard team. We raised enough money to send four of our athletes to Nationals in Seattle last week. And they did us proud!

We couldn't be more proud of our SUP athletes! What a great welcome at the airpot when we returned. The local media was very interested in our team!

What happens when you tether two giant, inflatable SUP boards together, each with 6 angry pirates, paddling their little hearts out to make the other giant SUP cross the center line first?? Grudge Match!! It’s back by popular demand thanks to California Republic SUP. After all the races are said and done on Sat., Sept. 29, grab a few feisty mates and sign up for the Grudge Match! You do not want to miss this crazy-fun, wild, bust-a-gut event. It’s a sight to see! #lakemurraypaddleclassic #grudgematch

G'head...start thinking about with whom you have a grudge so you can put together your team for this year's 2018 LMPC Grudge Match on Sept. 29, once again brought to you by California Republic SUP!
