Surfski day in Göteborg

To attract more paddlers to the fantastic world of surfski there is a happening twice a year in my hometown of Göteborg, the Surfski Day. It started a few years ago with just some local paddlers and a few curious participants. It has grown quite a bit since then and now there are between 80-100 local potential paddlers attending the event. Almost all dealers in Sweden are coming to demo their products. A great opportunity to test and compare different surfskis without any charge.

Almost every model from Allwave, Carbonology Sports, Epic, Fenn, Nelo, Nordic Kayaks, Think and Vajda were available for test paddling.

The interest for surfski paddling is still growing in Sweden and I think this is a good example to make it easier to the potential paddlers to start with surfski paddling. To make it even better and more social, I think organizing a fun sprint race and/or a free surfski clinic would attract even more people.

Here is a video from the surfski day in Göteborg, Sweden. Calm and conditions good conditons for beginners. It is still warm in Sweden. Almost 20 C! 🙂
