The Curt Davis Invitational Mustache Growing Contest of Paddlesports pits kayaker against kayaker in a contest to see who can grow the most humiliating mustache. Starting April 1st, 40 lucky competitors (first come first serve) will release their upper lip hair follicles to see who can rock the best ‘stache.

The brainchild of Asheville boater Joey Hall, the 2006 inaugural Curt Davis Invitational Mustache Growing Contest of Paddlesports was a huge success, even prompting a female boater to attempt to grow a stash. What’s even more shocking than watching grown men humiliate themselves in public with facial hair is that respectable companies like Immersion Research and Mion are willing to pony up killer prizes for the best mustache.
