World Championships of Surf Kayaking 2011
Steve Farthing report

Well I've finally made it to Nags Head, Outer Banks, North Carolina for the 2011 World Surf Kayak Championships and low and behold they've got waves. The competition site setup is similar to a break on Australia's Gold Coast called the Spit with a wedging left hand ramp coming off a jetty.............this place is made for aerials.

I managed an hour and a half session today with a couple of pommie kayakers and 20 odd local boardies who were all pretty friendly. The only problem I can see is the paddle out will be tough if it gets big which might happen this weekend. Galen, Tyler and the defending champ Dave Speller are here, could Tyler be thinking of entering on a kayak? Now that would be interesting. A few more of the competitors are turning up tonight including the Kings, my irish adopted family, might be a crowd in the morning.

Carolina's now well and truly on my mind.
