Surf Ski paddling

bg-2370

Tonight we had the first race of the Takapuna beach series, which is a great event that runs over the summer on the North Shore of Auckland city.

We have the choice of a 5k run,1k swim or 6km paddle with everybody starting at the same time.

Tonight I was really happy to win the first race of the series for this summer. After a good tussle with series defending champ Mike Walker and fellow Olympian Steven Ferguson I was able to gain some ground and win by a good margin.

The ski race series will provide some good training for a big race I have coming up in December – The Shamaal International Long Distance surf ski race. Also thanks to Epic for helping me out with a very fast V10 surf ski.www.epickayaks.com/
