Decorreu no mesmo dia da nossa Session só que do outro lado do mundo. Darren Bason, campeão inglês que se mudou para as águas quentes da costa oriental da grande ilha (recordar toda a história AQUI), organizou o seu primeiro evento. A equipa da MEGA Austrália apoiou o evento - www.surfkayaks.com.au - e Darren enviou-nos o report. A iniciativa contou com o nosso apoio e, em breve, Darren terá mais novidades sobre as suas aventuras em terras e ondas australianas.
The Weekend of the 9th and 10th of May saw a cast of about 20 Surf Kayakers from varying disciplines travel to the Sunshine Coast of QLD from as far away as Sth'n NSW and Mid north Queensland.

The event went very well had a good mix of ski's, and kayaks held in 2ft clean conditions which was ideal for the very first comp on the qld sunshine coast. The level of kayaking over here although a small sport the skills are very impressive. Also got the wave ski guys into some mega surf kayaks and they are very interested in buying some boats and entering the worlds . Also hooked up with Ross (Jervis Bay / Mega Australia) and Tracey and Bonnie. They drove 18hrs to get here with some demo Mega for all to use.
