Description

Our 2018 Paddle Surf Competition in the North East of England. We’re aiming for a one day event with all competitions now running on Saturday 12th May, dependent on conditions and timings.

Event Information

The day will consist of the following competitions:

  • A Beginners Coaching Session and Fun Competition

  • An Open Surf Kayak Competition

  • Tootega Best Waves Competition

Beginners Coaching Session and Fun Competition

We're running a sportivate introduction to paddle surf course at Cullercoats Paddlesport Club in the lead up to the competition. We're changing the format to use the morning for some coaching and then a low key competition geared towards those new to the sport and just developing. Bring you're own kit, or if you need to hire, let us know in advance and Cullercoats Bike and Kaya can assist.

After the coaching sessions we'll run this as three heats, depending on numbers, with your position in your heat:

  • The top paddlers will progress to the Cup Final
  • The next set of paddlers will progress to the Plate Final
  • The final paddlers will progress to the Shield final

Open Competition

The Open Competition is open to all craft Surf Kayak, Waveskit, Playboat, etc. and we're capping the entry at 20.

Paddlers will all initially compete against each other in the first 2 rounds of heats each lasting 10 - 15 minutes (dependant on entries and conditions). After the first two rounds we'll total the scores and then then split the field into two halves:

  • The top half of the results will progress to the Cup Semi Final / Final
  • The lower half of the results will progress to the Plate Semi Final / Final

Tootega Best Wave

An all in one heat format with beginners and world champions competing together to get the best wave score. Again a slightly different format this year with 7 dual sit on tops giving us double trouble for the best wave.
