Kayak Surfing

Another form of kayaking most people would not be aware of. There are so many aspects to kayaking and this is just another branch or excuse to get out there in a kayak and it is so much fun. It doesn’t have to be a specialist surfing kayak although they do exist and take the sport to a whole new level. Kayak surfing is a completely different sport with it’s own world champions and championships. Back to normal people you can use just about any kayak although some are better than others. If you want to learn more about kayak surfing let me know or you can do your own research. I will certainly be mentioning more in the future.

Over the last week we have had some good conditions for Mackay’s North wall to build up some nice waves and I have been out there making the most of it. If you are interested in giving kayak surfing ago, give me a call. We can have a chat about suitable kayaks and conditions. If you want to come out for a surf session or you would like some lessons on techniques, we can arrange that too. The North wall is one of the best surf beaches around Mackay. We don’t have the same surf conditions like down on the surf beaches of the Gold Coast or Sunshine coast, but for Mackay, it is what we have. We still have some fun.

Please find some photos below of my kayak surfing as well as a couple shots from friends who came down for a surf session over the weekend. These shots are taken from a Go Pro mounted on my helmet while surfing in my Turtle. The Turtle is more a white water kayak than a surf kayak. The other two guy, Mick and Mario were also in White water kayaks.
