PRIMI Naish Downwind Dash 2013/14
PRIMI and NaishSUP welcome you to another 20 weeks of arguably the best downwinding anywhere in the world!
With over 60 SUP’ers taking part last season we expect numbers to grow even further this year with better prizes and our new PHOTO-FINISH timing system from Mobii! Each paddler will now get a picture of their game-face, time and position uploaded to the web for all to see! Make sure you are one of them!
Cash prizes from PRIMI and Naish in excess of R10K + tons of lucky draw prizes means everyone will be a winner – just taking part and tackling the Milnerton to Big Bay 10.4km downwind run will make you a winner!
So pull in and join our current record holder Ivan van Vuuren, when he, and a bus load of up and coming youngsters try and break the 40 minute barrier. New improved equipment and paddling skills are bound to make it happen. Ivan’s record is currently 42.57min and last years series winner, Dylan Frick, will definitely try and challenge this time, as will Ethan Koopmans (European Naish ONE 2013 Champion), Kimon dos Santos (youngest M2O – Hawaii finisher 2013) and Josh Robertson.
Last year also saw a large numbers of ladies competing as downwinding is fun for everyone. Brigette van Aswegen (M2O – Hawaii Stock class 2013 champ) will try and keep ever improving Mishka Steyn and Patricia Kohrs behind her to make it 4 years out of 4. We welcome all ladies to come along – it’s safe and the most fun way to use our South Easters!
Rules will be unchanged except for the introduction of an Unlimited Class for boards over 14′ and/or with rudders. The main cash prize will still be allocated for overall winners of the 14′ class.
