The Miss World beauty pageant has been in existence since 1951 and is one of the most famous and well known beauty contests on this planet. One of the most popular sections of the contest is the beach wear section, but this has been notched up a gear with some of the contestants taking to water on Paddleboards.
This unusual event has come to be, due to the generous sponsoring of the Miss Hawaii and Miss Teen Hawaii Pageant by Blue Planet Surf.com and it gave the girls the chance to try their hand at Paddleboarding. The session took place at Ala Moana Beach park and it certainly looks like the girls all enjoyed themselves.
The pageant will take place on the 23rd of November to crown the winners, who will not only pick up the prestigious title but also receive a Blue Planet paddleboard too. A video of the contestants trying out the sport of Stand Up paddleboarding can be found below this article. Here at Surf Report we think the SUP should feature in all future Miss World contests and would happily volunteer to judge the event!
