Canadian Surfski Championships
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Following the success of the inaugural event in 2014, Deep Cove Outdoors and the Squamish Paddling Club are proud to present the second annual Canadian Surfski Championships on July 18th 2015! Thanks to our sponsors, we aim to provide another fantastic event, which is part of the World Surfski Series.
The course for the 21km downwind race will take competitors along a spectacular course from Porteau Cove to downtown Squamish, which spectators can view from Highway 99. Trophies and prizes will be awarded for competitors reaching ‘Hot Spots’, as well as traditional placings for both Canadian and International men and women.
The feedback from last year’s race was phenomenal, with world-class paddlers like Hank McGregor describing the course as “one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited.” This year sees the return of South African born World Champion Sean Rice, as well as competitors from Australia, South Carolina and California, as well as many local paddlers.
