On 3 December, 2010, the world’s elite paddlers will meet once more to take part in the fifth edition of the richest, most competitive surfski race on the planet – the Dubai Shamaal.

Hyperbole?

No, not at all.

Consider the talent that will be there:

  • Two time winner Australian Tim Jacobs (2009, 2008) – currently winning every race he enters back home in Australia (on a cool custom finished Nelo Crocaski)...
  • Dawid Mocke (South Africa), who has also won the Shamaal twice (2007, 2006) and who has already won the ISPA World Title for 2010 by winning the Perth Doctor (Australia), the Dunlop World Cup (South Africa) in Durban, EuroChallenge (Spain) and the US Surfski Champs in San Francisco.  The only ISPA series race he hasn’t won so far was the Island Shamaal in Mauritius where he came 4th.
  • Then there’s Jeremy Cotter (Australia) – this year 3rd in Molokai, 2nd in Mauritius, 2nd in Perth, 3rd in San Francisco.  Cotter is rumoured to be bitterly disappointed at not knocking off any of these races so far and is about as fired up as anyone can be.
  • Hank McGregor (SA) won the Island Shamaal this year handily, beating Cotter and Mocke (and Matt Bouman) but has never cracked the Shamaal – in 2007 he lead the race almost to the finish, being overtaken by Mocke who’d dramatically worked his way through the field after a disastrous start.  Is 2010 his year?
  • Matt Bouman (SA) was still recovering from a shoulder injury when he came 3rd in Mauritius.  He came second to Mocke in the tightest finish in surfski history when the two men sprinted across the line in Durban separated by mere inches.
  • Caine Eckstein (Aus) has been focussing on Ironman this year – and just won the prestigious Coolangata Gold in Australia, one of the toughest races on the planet, for a record fourth time.  (For stories and pics, see: http://www.goldcoast.com.au/coolangatta-gold.html)  Eckstein will be back to paddle with his brother Shannon, another freakish competitor who took the 2009 Dragon Run in his first outing in an international surfski race.  Shannon came second this year in San Francisco, beating Jeremy Cotter.

And if it blows, the Chalupsky brothers (SA) and Dean Gardiner (Aus) will be a factor – and rumour has it that the Australian great Clint Robinson (Aus) may be competing as well.

Hungry for glory are the up and coming youngsters including South Africa’s Sean Rice and Tom Schilperoort who have both beaten Dawid Mocke in local races in South Africa in the last couple of weeks.

Then there’s Tony Schumacher, and Ben Allen, both from Australia; Ben Allen is currently beating Jeremy Cotter in the Australian Ocean Series...

And a fleet of European paddlers will also be there – Portuguese, Spanish, French, British, German, Italian, Swedish and Norwegian.  In 2008 and 2009 the top Olympic sprint and World Champion marathon paddlers were all in Dubai to take on the surfski specialist and each year they’ve done better and better...

Women's Race

In the women’s race Nikki Mocke (SA) will be dicing with compatriot Michele Eray (winner in 2008 and 2009), Katie Pocock (NZ) and Ruth Highman (Aus).
