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.
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! 🙂
