Board and Ski Paddling
Starting from the beach, each competitor enters the water with their surfboard, paddles around all buoys and returns to the beach. The board course is conducted over a distance of approx. 550m
This event consists of up to 16 teams of three paddlers completing the board course, conducted over a distance of approx. 550M each. Upon returning to the beach the competitors completing the first and second legs will tag the next person, with the third competitor crossing the finish line to end the race.
Each team consists of two members – one swimmer and one board paddler. On the start, the swimmer or ‘patient’ enters the water and swims to a buoy, where a raised hand signal is given for the board paddler to enter the water and rescue the swimmer.
Once the swimmer is reached, they climb onto the board, and together both competitors paddle the board back to the beach, aiming to crossing the finish line first.
Ski (Single & Double)
All events involve paddling a fibreglass ski from the beach, through the break and around a defined course (set by buoys) and back to the water’s edge, crossing the finishing line. Up to sixteen competitors or teams may compete in a single heat.
Competitors will paddle a ski around the ski course, with the race conducted over a distance of approx. 600M from knee-deep water.
This event consists of a team of three paddlers completing the ski course over a distance of approx. 600M each. Upon returning to the beach the competitors who complete the first and second legs will tag the next person, with the third crossing the finish line to finish the race.
