Description

Every April since 2002 we've run the Shoreline Handicapped Surf Kayak Classic. A one day surf kayak contest where competitors fill out a questionnaire before the event to create a handicap making the following contest fair for all abilities. It's a unique system that has proved very popular and allows first time surf kayakers to compete against top internationals without any pressure.

This one day event has grown with the introduction of a separate contest on the Sunday run by Bude Canoe Club. This follows more traditional surf kayak contest formats with long and short boat classes as well as categories for juniors, ladies, over 40's and surf skis. These two events together with a Saturday meal and night out in Bude make up the Black Rock Surf Kayak Festival which we are proud to administer.

Entries for either event must be received in advance (by the 2nd of April 2016).

Directions

The Festival is run from Black Rock Beach on the south side of Widemouth Bay. To get to us drive down the A39 past Bude and take the Widemouth Bay turn off just before Poundstock. Follow the road to the coast and down a steep hill arriving at Black Rock Car Park and Cafe - pay on entry to the car park and drive down and right to our competition area. If you have driven from Bude along the coast road then this car park is half a mile the other side of widemouth main car park.

The Events

Both days start with an early check in at 8.30 am. These sort of events require everyone to be ready at the start and to be involved throughout the day both competing and judging. If you've never judged before don't worry as we'll support you and guide you through this process.

Participation

Any kayaker is welcome to take part in these events. Both days are run in a friendly "come and have a go" atmosphere. All boats should have full buoyancy and be in good condition, all paddlers should wear a helmet and buoyancy aid.

Saturday Meal

Will be at Rosie's Kitchen at Crooklets Beach. There will be 3 options including a vegetarian option and a dessert.

POSTPONED! 14 Apr 2016 @ 11:29

Sorry Guys but for the first time in 10 years its looking like it will be completely flat this coming weekend. So we're calling it tonight and postponing the event for two weeks. This gives us the same neap tides which are ideal for the contest. Our dates will now be Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May. Timings, Evening Meal etc all the same. If you can't make this weekend then let us know and we'll give you a full refund. Apologies for this disruption.

Simon.
