The Caribbean Surfski Tour will be a much smaller, more humble event than we had hoped for this year.

The Soualiga Challenge proved to be exactly that this year. At the finish line, winner Dawid Mocke said that was the hardest race he had ever done. Instead of the light easterly winds predicted, the weather dished up an early taste of the well known "Christmas Winds", 15 to 20 kts from the Northeast. This meant that instead of the expected downwind conditions, the paddlers were faced with strong gusts and 1.5m breaking seas from the side. Not and easy way to travel 25km across open water.

What could be better than sandy tropical beaches, warm Caribbean Sea, friendly smiles and Dollar beers? Answer ... all that plus surfski racing. This year the Caribbean mini tour brings you not just two, but three top-notch races in an action-packed week. Slotted in at the end of September / beginning of October, the Mini Tour is in its third year now and is becoming more than just a race.

The Caribbean island of Guadeloupe had had a week of superb paddling conditions - great wind, great waves. The day of the Defis Kayak race dawned however to... zero wind and zero waves. "It was like paddling in an oven," said Franck Fifils.
