5 April 2016


The 2016 Bay Union Surfski Series is about to kick off with it’s FUN season starter on Sunday, 17 April. That’s less than two weeks away so we trust you have been using the recent holidays to get in some extra time on the water!

In 2016 the series aims to innovate by bringing something new and a little different to Durban’s surfski community with five unique paddling experiences.

2015R1Crowd450Another new element to this year’s series is our exciting Club Time Trial Road Show. The Bay Union Surfski Series will be at the following dices in the build up to the first race:

1. Wednesday, 6 April – Umzinyathi Canoe Club, Shongweni
2. Thursday, 7 April – Kingfisher Canoe Club
3. Tuesday, 12 April – PYC (Stella Canoe Club)
4. Thursday, 14 April – PWC/DUC

We will also be at the Geriatskis social surfski paddle at PYC on Saturday, 9 April!

Head to our Facebook event to find out more information about the road show!

There will be some prizes to the first couple of paddlers in surfskis across the finish line at each of our road show venues as well as some great lucky draw prizes.

The goal of the road show is to bring the series to the paddlers and have some fun with you at your local clubs.

We will be in the bar, buying some beers, coffees and chocolate milks after each dice and will happily answer any questions you may have about the series as well as our awesome sponsors Bay Union.

A big thanks to Bay Union for once again making the series possible. Check out for more information about their great products and services.

See you on the water,
Barry Lewin
Race Organiser
