Two weeks to go to the first competition of the Watertech Irish Surf Kayak League 2008.
As you know http://www.Watertechkayaks.com 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. In fact the kayak manufactures are coming to the first event all the way from Portugal.
Also Munster Dive and Canoe http://www.mdac.ie will be supplying individual event prices for all the Munster events.
The exact location of the comp will be decided in the days just prior to the event. Notice will be posted on the new http://www.paddlesurf.ie website and a mailing will be sent to all on the list. (If you want to be added to the mailing list just contact [email protected].) But it will be somewhere between Lahinch and Doonbeg.
