Watertech Irish Surf Kayak League 2008

Kayak Surf Ireland are pleased to announce http://www.watertechkayaks.com are sponsoring the 2008 league.
Watertech are supplying prizes of a brand new 'Lucifer' and a brand new 'Speedy' for best newcomer (defined as someone who has not competed in a glass boat before) and the overall winner of the 2008 league. Watertech are also going to be providing two demo boats that will be available for anyones use at every event.
Also Munster Dive and Canoe http://www.mdac.ie will be supplying individual event prices for all the Munster events.
This years league will be running in conjunction with the waveski one, with all events being dual discipline. Next years surf kayak world championship is on in Portugal and this years league is the starting point for building a team for it.

To aid us we would ask people to pre register their attendance before the Friday night of the competition weekend. There is no problem just turning up on the morning of the event but it would help us out.
