Taranaki SUP Classic Surf Race

Waitara
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Long distance
3 pm - 4 pm Sunday. February 5. 2017
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: gentle breeze Swell Direction: Swell Size: waist Tide: Mid - Falling.

After the surfing contest was the SUP surf race so the competitors decamped from the Waitara Board Riders to Waitara beach. A couple of markers were set up in the surf zone and the course was simply twice around and back in. There were at least 15 racers and the wind was about 12 knots so it was a slog into the wind and try and catch a wave back if you were lucky. I had an ok start but fell at one mark and didn't manage to catch a swell and actually thought it was three times around the course. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Good fun to have a surf race which has a bit of luck and surf skills in it.
