Surf Kayak Symposium - 12th - 14th October

This Surf Kayak Symposium is based in the stunning St Ives Bay, Cornwall which forms a shallow crescent, some 4 miles or 6 km across, between St Ives in the west and Godrevy Head in the east. Sign up before the 2nd October.

Longest Day Ocean Challenge

The Ski race is open to SLSA single and double skis and ocean single and double skis. The race is designed to challenge the experienced paddler but also provide an entry-level race for new or inexperienced paddlers. This race will take the same format as the Exmouth Epic Bay Race. It is a 3-lap course (each lap being - 4km).

Once the lead ski completes three laps, the ‘course’ closes and the remaining paddlers on the course complete the lap they are on and head into the finish. This ensures that all paddlers finish in a small time window and that the race caters for a range of paddlers’ experience.
