Rest is Best Surf Kayak & Waveski Competition, 2014

A trip down to South Wales at the weekend for the first “Rest is Best” kayaksurf competition. The Saturday was a handicap event following the same format as the Black Rock competition, with 23 competitors signed up. High tide at Rest Bay meant the start was postponed until there was some sand available to launch boats from. A few brave souls did head out for a free surf , resulting in one broken (brand new!) boat and a few broken fins! Once the event got underway everyone surfed 2 heats before the surf dropped off. Sunday was relocated to Coney Beach for the semi finals, finals and the separate categories.
