World Championships of Surf Kayaking Getting Ready to Crank Up Later This Week


DSCF0685 (Large)The World Championships of Surf Kayaking will be getting cranked up Thursday with safety checks and opening ceremonies. Then the action starts Friday. Everyone is starting to show up now. Jeannette’s Pier is seeing a lot of activity with new competitors showing up every day.

Devon Barker and the rest of the team have been working with Troy – getting him dialed in on the surf. The transfer from river to ocean seems to going well since the team has been very helpful.

The comp has been moved from Waves to Nags Head after Hurricane Irene and it seems to be a great venue for the event. The event organizers did a FANTASTIC job of getting the event moved and arrange housing for all the athletes and their families. Nice work!!

Will update as things get cranked up. Here are some pics of Troy and Devon during training this afternoon.
