Candice Appleby

Renowned waterwoman Candice Appleby began surfing at the age of nine and competing at age ten. As the captain of her high school surf team, she led San Clemente High to four consecutive national titles. She went on to obtain her degree at the University of Hawaii, and pursue surfing full force. In 2006, she decided to give stand up paddle surfing a try. And with her amazing fitness level and surfing background, Candice was soon competing again – and beating – men in SUP racing and surfing. In 2008, at the Duke Kahanamoku Oceanfest, Candice became the first and only woman to beat men in a professional SUP surfing event, winning both the women’s and Open Pro divisions. She went on to claim victory six times at Battle of the Paddle, and thrice after it became the Pacific Paddle Games champion—an event long considered to be the World Championship or “Superbowl” of SUP. She’s also been #1 Female SUP Athlete of the Year three times, APP World Tour Champion in 2015, and has collected 4 gold medals for the United States over an international field at the ISA World Championships in 2015, 2016, and 2018. Candice has qualified for the 2019 Pan-American Games and will represent Team USA in both SUP Surfing and Technical racing. Today, Candice Appleby is known as a pioneer of SUP and also its foremost champion. ESPN W calls her “Abby Wambach, Serena Williams, Brittney Griner and Danica Patrick all rolled into one. She’s talented, fiercely competitive, tremendously well-respected and a true ambassador of the sport.”
