2011 US Surfski Championships

US Surfski Champs is less than two months away and hopefully we’ll have a strong Washington contingent representing this year in San Francisco!  There’s a couple exciting changes to the short and doubles race course that will make for fun downwind racing.

Long Course: 17.5 Miles

Same course as last year; start at Ft. Baker, around Point Bonita, tuck in for the Fenn hotspot, next to Angel Island, finish at the Berkeley Marina for a total distance of 17 miles.  The noon start coincides with max flood tide, so tucking in & eddy hopping out to Point Bonita may by key….

Short Course : 9.2 Miles

Big change to the short course making it a ripping downwinder.  Start at Fort Baker, hang a left to Angel Island and start surfing, finish at the Berkeley Marina after 9 miles of downwind action.

Doubles Course : 13 Miles

Another big change from the up and back course to a downwinder.  Start at Fort Baker, head out two miles to Point Diablo, turn and start surfing past Angel Island into finish at Berkeley Marina.  It will be awesome to have our PNW doubles represent!!

Ocean Paddle Sports will be at US Champs in force with a full line of ski rentals and demo’s.  Come check out the new FENN ELITE SL & SWORDFISH , plus a full line of wing paddles and accessories.
