Description

**Handicap Event. **. This is the 3rd year of Rest is Best Handicap Surf Kayak Competition. A one day surf kayak contest where competitors fill out a questionnaire before the event to create a handicap making the following contest fair for all abilities. This system has proven very popular and allows first time surf kayakers to compete against top internationals without any pressure.

Rest Bay Surf Kayak Festival Rest Bay Surf Kayak Festival will be run over TWO DAYS in conjunction with Saturdays handicap competition which brings the more traditional surf kayak contest formats with long and short boat classes as well as categories for juniors, ladies, over 40's and surf skis. The short boat open finals will be held on the Sunday. All competitors are required for judging.

These two events together with a Saturday meal and night out in Porthcawl make up the Rest is Best Surf Kayak Competition not to be missed.

All meeting for evening food at the Farmers Arms in Nottage, Porthcawl.

How to enter. Entries for either event must be received in advance. Please use the PayPal link below

General Information The competition is run from Rest Bay at Porthcawl and or Coney Bay if conditions are better. Check in at Rest Bay Pay and Display Car Park (4 miles from J37 on the M4 heading south into Porthcawl). The car park is next to the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club. Rest Bay is on the westward side of the town. All competitors need to be on time for a prompt start and also so if we need to relocate to Coney Beach no one is left hanging.

Insurance Bring your BCU / Governing body membership card. Governing body membership is essential to cover the insurance needs of the event.

The Events Both days start with an early check in at 8.00 am to 8.30 am. These sorts of events require everyone to be ready at the start and to be involved throughout the day both competing and judging. If you've never judged before don't worry as we'll support you and guide you through this process.

Participation Any kayaker is welcome to take part in these events. Both days are run in a friendly "come and have a go" atmosphere. All boats should have full buoyancy and be in good condition, all paddlers should wear a helmet and buoyancy aid.
