KAYAKSURF AND WAVESKI WORLDS / STEVE WAS IN BOTH!

MUNDIAL DE KAYAKSURF E WAVESKI - O BALANÇO DE QUEM PARTICIPOU EM AMBOS: STEVE FARTHING


Steve Farthing by Penny Bedford

No Mundial de Kayaksurf no nosso país, sagrou-se Campeão em Masters HP. Semanas depois rumou a casa para participar no Mundial de Waveski. Steve Farthing está numa posição privilegiada para nos falar sobre os dois eventos. Vejam as respostas!

He won in the Portuguese Kayakurf Worlds the title of Masters HP. Weeks later, went home to participate in the Waveski World Titles. Steve Farthing is the right man to give us a small balance of both events. Check out the answers:

Hi Steve. You were this year in two World Championships - kayaksurf and waveski. What will you remember about this two events?

Both were terrific well run events. Kayaksurf being associated with Ocean Spirit did have the edge though with the massive infrastructure, music festival and crowds as well as exposure to other surf disciplines. Apart from the competitive side of things I really enjoyed meeting new people with a common interest and now I have a bunch of new friends living on the other side of the world. From a waveski perspective we had great surf, I got to catch up with all my old mates and had a ball behind the mic. Didnt have the best of competitions in terms of results but had some great freesurfs and landed some of the biggest aerials of my life.

Differences and similarities between the two experiences...

Waveskis have more than 30 years of competition and design behind them hence there are more guys doing bigger moves and we saw them at Coffs Harbour just check out http://www.subgraviti.com/ and http://www.peniorphotography.com/ . When I look at Surf Kayaks in particular the Random Evolution which was designed around a waveski I can see the gap closing particularly if you can get a few of the top waveskiers on board. They're both really fun sports with great people involved and I really think we have an opportunity to merge both disciplines, I'm hooked on both and cant wait till the next event.

Wouldnt be great if Ocean Spirit took on the next world waveski titles.

cheers

Steve Farthing
