The 2015 Ventura Paddle Surfing Championships are just 3 days away!

Come join us October 9th & 10th at the Point at C Street, Ventura!

This event is OPEN to International competitors and will result in naming a new US Open Champion, as well as the new US Waveski National Champion, Sign up now, as the Waveski Open event may be limited to 32 competitors. Other waveski divisions include the various age divisions, a women’s division, and of course the Freestyle/Finless division. A high performance surf kayak class will also be included.

Heats will be 15 or 20 minutes in length, and scores will be based on the best 2 or 3 waves depending upon conditions. The format will follow World Waveski Surfing Association rules and include repercharge rounds insuring that everyone surfs at least twice in the open division. Judges will be ASP certified.

About the surf break: C-Street is a world renown point break that works from 1’ to 10’ plus and can offer rides in excess of a quarter mile! Quality waves are found at multiple peaks along this mile long cobble point. This allows more rides per surf session. The actual contest site will be located ‘Up top’ at the Point just east of the Ventura River mouth.

This year’s event is featuring a fully sponsored adaptive surfing class in the competition for those with mobility-limiting injuries such as spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries. Supported by High FIves Foundation and Cojo Bay Advisors, to showcase the power of positivity out in the ocean. For more information please contact Tyler Lausten, [email protected]

Thanks to Kirby Subaru, we will have cash prizes for the top 4 finalists in both the SUP open and Waveski open events! We are also pleased to announce that will be giving away a $1700 custom waveski at this years event to the waveski competitor selected as the most promising.
