The summer might be drawing to a close (always disappointing even if it’s expected) but the autumn months bring new events and excitement to the Causeway Coast, not least this year, the World Surf Kayak Championships in 2017!
In October, 20th to 28th, Portrush’ East Strand beach will welcome up to 150 competitors and it’s easy to see why the competition choose our backyard as the location for this years event.
The East Strand, set along the breathtaking Causeway Coastal Route, which was recently featured on BBC One’s The One Show, offers approximately 2.5 miles of glorious beach front and crashing waves.
Competitors from as far flung as Australia, USA, Japan, Costa Rica and countless other European nations, will battle it out on the hard swells of the Atlantic Ocean for Best Team and Best Individual Championships and crowds are guaranteed exciting viewing and big air moves!
The event, organised by the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland, will be free to spectators and will also include local boys Johnny Bingham and Andy McClelland competing for top prizes.
Need to Know:
- October 20th – 28th
- Free Entry
- Over 150 nations competing
If you plan to visit Portrush during the Championships, to participate, support or just enjoy the fun, we’d be happy to accommodate you.
You’ll get a classic Causeway Coast welcome, a week of craic, and plenty of hospitality (should you require it…).
