2010 National Championships of Surfkayaking – FINAL Results

NACIONAL Norte Americano de Kayaksurf / RESULTADOS / Edu Etxeberria e Selecção Basca em grande!

Urko Otxoa flies off the lip in the Short Boat Quarter Finals

Decorreu no passado fim de semana na costa Este dos EUA mais uma edição do campeonato norte-americano de kayaksurf que incluiu a "Battle 4 Hateras" - uma prova onde três atletas formam uma equipa que disputa três classes distintas (HP, IC e Waveski) na busca do melhor resultado. A prova teve ainda a particularidade de decorrer no mesmo local onde será o Mundial de Kayaksurf 2011 (Outer Banks). A selecção basca esteve presente e ganhou quase tudo... como habitualmente ;) Fica o report e alguns dos resultados. Mais em baixo, o link para o site da ESKA (Associação de Kayaksurf da Costa Este dos EUA).

Check out the message from Joey Hall - "The ESKA 2010 National Championships of Surf Kayaking and Battle 4 Hatteras ran smoothly, with fantastic waves, nice weather and good friends surfing with one another. Some people won and some lost, but everyone had a good attitude about it. Below you will find a journal of the weekend’s events as well as the competition results. We look forward to seeing everyone this time next year, same location, for the 2011 World Championships of Surf Kayaking." - Congratulations for the event guys ;) Below, after these photos and some results, the link for ESKA site with all the report.

Joey Hall and Julen Arriz / The basque was the only Junior paddler in attendance at the event, though he competed in the Men's events and advanced to Semi-Finals. Expect some very competitive surfing from this 17-year-old in the near future! He's already very talented and he surfs with Edu and Urko regularly - a recipe for great surfing.

The Basque Team: An incredible bunch of athletes, nice folks and great sports.


Thanks Joey and Spencer and congratulations ;)

Boas ondas,
