Oct 7-10: US Surf Kayak Nationals, World Cup Qual., and Battle for Hatteras

Hi all,
I’ll have the registration info posted soon with more stuff about where to stay, etc sometime this weekend.

We’ll be holding the event in the Buxton/Hatteras area (the Lighthouse/Frisco), as we did last time it was on the East coast.

Oct 7-8 will be the Battle for Hatteras portion of the event. For those who do not know, the Battle for Hatteras is a 3 on 3 team event featuring a Wave Ski, an IC boat, and a short boat. You can form a team however you’d like, but there are bonuses for including juniors and women. If you need help forming a team, please contact us.  We will limit entry to 8 three person teams.  For full rules check the old B4H site http://battleforhatteras.wordpress.com/rules-and-info/

The Battle for Hatteras is optional, and anyone may enter a team.

The US National Surf Kayak Championships will take place at the same contest site on Oct 9-10. You do NOT have to have participated in the B4H event to enter the Nationals. We will be crowning National Champions in short and long boat divisions for men, women, juniors, and masters. We will also offer a separate waveski class if there is interest.

The short boat divisions will also be counted as World Cup qualifiers.

ANYONE MAY COMPETE IN THE US NATIONALS. You do not have to be an American, though we will be crowning the US Champs out of the top placing American competitors.

Anyone flying in should consider flying to Newport News, Virginia Beach, or Raleigh Durham Intl Airports. Contact me for more info and I’ll help you get where you need to go.

Email your questions to deadmanprd AT gmail DOT com

I’ve heard rumor that Marc Woolward and Buck Johnson are flying in, I urge everyone else to attend as well so I can find an excuse not to have to hang out with them.

I’ll post a link to more info in a few days.

Thanks!
