Durban, South Africa - Former Discovery Scottburgh to Brighton winner Bevan Manson and fellow East London based, 19-year-old paddling talent Kyle Friedenstein not only outshone a classy field but also overcame treacherous conditions in the second half of the race to deservedly claim this year's spoils.

Durban - The winter surfski season comes to a head on Saturday with the gruelling 46km Discovery Scottburgh to Brighton ultra marathon, which has been given added intensity by the certainty that the field of paddlers will race through the sardine run, and with it will be close to the marine bonanza that follows the sardine migration up the coast.

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.
