Simon Hammond

Surf Symposium 2011 Denmark
by Casper Gyldenberg

The weekend kicked off Friday evening when people began to check into. In the evening, Simon Hammond held a lecture about the way to become world champion. There sat many, listening and dreaming at the top of the podium at the world championships in kayak surfing. Saturday morning went so loose in the waves in Klitmøller Cold Hawaii where the day was on workshops, and plenty of comfort among the participants.

Hen of the day watching the rescue helicopter dropped by to take aerial images of surfers in the water. Really cool to get some surf pictures from a different angle. Sunday was on the DKF Surf Raid, another kayak surf competition on Danish soil. It was the unofficial Danish championship so surfers from Sweden may well participate. The day went really well and there were many exciting race in today's competition and you could see that the surfers were much better than the competition last year.

First place went to Petter Like Berg, Sweden, second place went to Lars Larsson and third place went to Dane David Tetzschner.

This competition has given the Danes something to train for, it can not be true that the Swedes will come and take almost all podium places in Denmark championships.
