Bluerush is proud to host the 2015 Battle of the Bay WPA Championships and Salt Life CUP with the top paddlers in the world to attend the event and expo in San Francisco Bay. Stand Up Paddle boarders, Prone, OC1 and OC2 & new for 2015, surf skis will be offered to take part in this monumental event. Races will include short courses, technical, distance, juniors and relays. There will be an award ceremony each day with medals for 1st-3rd places in all races with two divisions- Elite and Open. On the beach spectators can check out the latest merchandise and equipment from our Sponsors, meet the pros, learn about sports nutrition and even take a yoga class. Entertainment onsite and all event action will be broadcasted as the competitors race close to the shores of Presidio National Park, around Alcatraz and to the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge. The Battle of the Bay will also again be host to the Northern California SUP & Prone OPEN Championship and the Northern California OC1  & OC2 Championships. 

All competitors are asked to pick up their registration packet on Friday, October 16th from 5-10pm at Bluerush and to stop by our kick off party at Bar Bocce (across the street) in Sausalito.  On Saturday the 17th and Sunday the 18th, the Expo will open at 8:00 AM on the East Beach at Crissy Field. Sponsors will have booths showcasing their products and equipment and expert SUP racers will be on hand offering demonstrations. Race times will be determined closer to the event date along with the race schedule based on the weather forecast and Bay current conditions for each day to conduct the safest and most competitive races for all competitors.

Family owned and operated, Bluerush is the leader in supporting and promoting all aspects of the world’s fastest growing water sport. Located in Sausalito, California they offer their clientele hands on instruction and demonstration of equipment from leading SUP manufacturers.
