Description

We’re bringing a Surf Kayak Competition back to the North East of England. We’re aiming for a one day event with two competitions on Saturday 17th October.

Event Information

The day will consist of 2 main competitions:

  • A Beginners competition sponsored by Tootega and Cullercoats Bike and Kayak

  • An Open Surf Kayak Competition

Tootega are also going to run a separate Best Wave competition which will be open to those entering one of the two competitions, more details to follow.

Beginners Competition

We're running a 12 week intro to surf course to develop Surf Kayaking in the North East in the lead up to the competition. The beginners competition is geared towards those new to the sport and just developing. There's no restriction on the boats used and there'll be 12 Tootega sit on tops to use at the event if you want to use one.

We'll run this as three heats of 6, depending on your position in your heat:

  • Positions 1 and 2 in each heat will progress to the main final
  • Positions 3 and 4 in each heat will progress to the shield final
  • Positions 5 and 6 in each heat will progress to the plate final

Open Competition

For the open competition we're capping the entry at 20 and will run each round as six heats with 5 competitors in each heat running with a handicap system.

Paddlers will compete in 3 to 4 rounds of heats each lasting 13 - 15minutes (dependant on entries and time on the day). For each round of heats competitors will be re-shuffled so you’ll be against different paddlers each time. Throughout the day you’ll compete scoring in each heat as they do so. At the end of the day overall placings will be established by the paddlers total point score added to their handicap, the lowest score will win.

A paddlers’ handicap will be set according to the following details:

Handicapping Questionnaire 2 points added for each question answered ‘yes’.

  • Are you 18 or over?
  • Are you between 19 and 39?
