This annual event, now in its 12th year is growing from strength to strength with surfers from all around the country gearing up to participate within the various categories as well an increase in support from the crowds year on year!??
The Stand up paddle event will once again be the SUPSA sanctioned South African Championships which will enjoy an unprecedented third year in Durban and the Surf Carnival organisers are pleased to host this premier SUP wave riding event again. ??
This year will also include SUP Course Racing which is a new discipline to the event and will see South Africa's top SUP paddlers racing along the Backline of the Golden Mile. ?
The Forgotten Soul Retro surfing competition is also on the line-up again, exposing the history of South African surfing with surfers riding surfboards manufactured in the 70's and 80's as well as longboarding - going back to the "roots" of Surfing. ?
"Holding the SA Champs in Durban for the third year running is a huge bonus for the event which has religiously and faithfully included SUP surfing since 2007 and even before an SUP association even existed.
New Pier as a venue is also a massive draw card for SUPers countrywide and once again we will be expecting a huge contingent from Cape Town," says Paul Godwin from Nerve Events?The Longboarding event will once again see South Africa's Style masters in action in various divisions. ?
