2005 Men's Health Scottburgh to Brighton

Tuesday, 15 November 2005 11:37 |

Background: my paddling goal for 2005 was to take part in the Cape Point Challenge, a long distance (56km) surf ski race that takes place every other December here in Cape Town. Not having paddled many long distance races before - one only and that a mere 31km - I mounted a year-long campaign and started training in February. First goal in the campaign was to take part in the annual Men's Health Scottburgh to Brighton race off the Kwa-Zulu Natal coast.

The 46km distance of the race didn't worry me; by race day I'd have done nearly 1000km of training including a number of 30km+ paddles. No, what worried me was the notorious Durban surf.

Cool new look for SurfSki.Info

Wednesday, 18 January 2006 13:20 |

SurfSki.Info is two months old and in this time we've had close on 30 000 visitors. To celebrate we have given the site a makeover. The cool sea-blue menu and tropical banner are there to inspire you to not only surf the internet, but to get out there and paddle! The clean white background with red hyperlinks reflect the classic white and red colours of many surf-skis.  Let us know what you think and tell us if you spot any bugs...
