After several years of evolution of surfkayaking in Galicia and the experience of having successfully organized various international competitions for a few years, we decided that we could take a big step forward and organize a surfkayaking world championship.
It all started for me when I was asked to join the England team earlier this year. The months that followed we arranged the flights, car hire and accommodation in America. The venue was at Nags Head on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and we flew into Washington DC from London Heathrow.
The World Surf Kayaking Association announced the next worlds will be in Australia in 2013. The beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland will host the event. We wish the Australian organisers good luck with the preparations. More news on the WSSKA website.
The Eastern Surf Kayaking Association, in coordination with the US East Surf Kayak Team, has been awarded the bid to host the 2011 World Surf Kayaking Championships on the east coast of the United States.
