A group dedicated to Ocean and Surf Ski Paddling around South Australia. This group takes part in SLSA spec surf ski competitions and ocean ski downwind paddling training sessions and special events within South Australia and Australia. The group is supported by Natural Gas - South Australia and is affiliated with Canoe SA, Australian Canoeing and works closely with Surf Life Saving South Australia.
Members are from South Australian Surf Life Saving Clubs, Canoeing Clubs, Outriggers and Stand Up Paddlers plus recreation paddlers.
Our aim is to deliver training and development sessions that improve paddling and take part in events involving downwind racing whilst providing an organisation for all to be part of.
We use ocean skis (familiar brands like Epic and Fenn, Think, Vajda and Stellar), outriggers, racing kayaks and SLSA spec racing skis.
Our aim is to participate in high level ocean paddling events, such as the Australian Ocean Series, Perth World Cup, 20 Beaches and other events in Australia like the Anaconda and the Molokai World Cup event in Hawaii.
All training and special event updates and entries are included on the groups Facebook page, all paddlers are welcome to post, events, training sessions and in particular group meet ups for downwind training.
The presentation event at the Holdy went well and thanks to all of you who attended. As mentioned the support of our sponsors is vital to the series and we sincerely thank them all for their contribution. Also the clubs that provided much need water cover and our Surf Life Saving Association we thank you as well.
These events are for you the paddlers and we thank you for supporting the races and hopefully next season will be bigger and better again.
