The Pitch & Paddle Surfski Series began in 2013 and immediately took the Durban winter surfski circuit by storm!
With the success of Durban’s summer series, hosts Marine Surf Lifesaving Club (SLC) and their events manager Barry Lewin is always out to bring a fresh feel to the winter surfski scene in Durban.
This year sees the series aiming to offer three unique surfski paddling experiences while also best utilising the great paddling conditions Durban’s winter offers.
The old ‘series’ format has been done away with, meaning no more series points, logs and prize giving. The previous format forced all races to use a similar blueprint and thus became very similar in nature. Therefore, to keep things fresh and FUN, this year’s races will now focus on offering something completely different at each outing.
The 3 races will focus on the following areas:
o Race 1 – @ Marine
o Race 2 – @ Marine
o Race 3 – @ Dairy Beach
So come along… dust off those skis, haul out the life jackets & we’ll see you on the start line of the Pitch & Paddle Surfski Series!
