SURF SPORTSSURF SKI
Strength, power and stability is what is required to rocket a ski through the waves around three buoys and back to the beach. Athletes start paddling skis from 14 years and above and are amazing to watch in the surf and the skill of competitors to control the craft. Competitors also race a ski relay event which involves three competitors in a team each completing the ski course before running and tagging their next competitor.
The fastest craft on the water a double ski event is a must watch. Two paddlers power the craft similar to a ski event, starting standing in the water and launching onto the ski and propel it forward out through the waves, around three buoys out at sea before returning to the shore to finish.
