Competition Report Scarborough HP Kayak

The newly formed Scarborough Surf Club held their first surf event in Scarborough North Bay on Sunday 26th Feb,with competition categories for longboard, shortboard and high performance kayak.

There was a great deal of excitement amongst the kayakers gathered early in the morning for the first kayaksurf competition in the North East since 2009. For some it was their first ever competition, for others it was the first event of the 2012 competition season. For everyone it was a chance to meet other surfers, exchange tips and drool over the latest boats, with demo boats available from both Mega Surf Kayaks and Nomad Surf Kayaks. Amongst all the talk of fin systems and layups there was little doubt who was destined for the final – with three world champions in the heats the battle was on to make it into the final with them!

The final was exceptionally tight with all four competitors very evenly matched. Although Chris Hobson claimed the highest individual wave score, consistent surfing throughout the heat enabled honorary local Adam Harvey to just clinch the final, before having to sprint back ashore for his longboard to also claim 2nd place in the longboard final!

Congratulations go to Dave Hanson who made it through to the semis in his first competition, commiserations to Warren Pentelow and Richard Whittaker for falling foul of the yellow bib curse!
