WaveChaser Paddle Series announces the 9th annual US Surfski Championships will be contested in San Francisco Bay the weekend of August 13-14. Race organizers expect an international field of top paddlers including racers from South Africa, New Zealand, and the United States.
Durban – Hank McGregor snagged his third Dunlop Surfski World Cup title showing the rich vein of form he is in at the moment beating a very powerful field and an uncooperative flat ocean to comfortably win the 26km race and the hefty R40000 winner’s prize.
Not quite what we came for: no wind, and massive surf at the finish! Hank McGregor was too strong for the rest of the field; Matt Bouman came second; Dawid Mocke third. Michele Eray won the women’s race; Nikki Mocke came second.
Durban – Olympian Michéle Eray jets into Durban this week with a fierce determination to erase the nightmare of 2010 by winning the Dunlop Surfski World Cup title that slipped through her fingers last year.
World Series and national champion Dawid Mocke claimed a hat trick of titles by the narrowest of margins when he won the Surf Ski Classic at the 21st Nelson Mandela Bay Splash Festival in Port Elizabeth on Friday.
