21-22 January 2017

A two day feast of stand up paddling, earning points towards your series totals, or stand alone results for the multitude of different events being contested across the weekend.

The Ray White Mission Bay City Surf series, is holding event #5 in Pauanui on the weekend of Saturday January 21st / Sunday January 22nd. Thanks to their latest new partner Hoppers Developments City Surf are able to put on a weekend of SUP and Ski Paddle Events so lock in this weekend to bring the friends and family away. The surf race held at Pauanui Beach (beside the surf club) will be event #5 and with a 2-day window we will run the event on either day to ensure the best surf racing conditions available.  City Surf will decide the date of the surf race event and the date of the Waterways events on Thursday Jan 19th and announce it on Facebook.

Pauanui is an amazing location for our event with so many options to get on the water. To ensure an epic weekend of SUP and Ski Paddle Action CIty Surf will also be looking to put on some of the below (conditions depending) events to have a great social weekend on the water additional to the surf race:

  • SUP XL team races through the surf after the surf race.
  • A flat water event around the Pauanui Waterways.
  • Red Paddle Co - Dragon races in the Waterways.
  • Team Relay races in the Waterways.
  • Individual Drag races down the Waterways.
  • Around Shoe Island paddle.
  • A downwind paddle up/ down the estuary.

More information to come of all the festivities including the Saturday night party also.

The City Surf season continues Thursday Evenings from 26 January at Mission Bay.

If you love to SUP then there’s an event for you every Thursday at City Surf. Choose your event easily depending on the length and style of board you own and participate with like-minded SUP enthusiasts while increasing your fitness each week. The series is focused on fun and fitness with a huge social aspect each week. Competitiveness is friendly and participants are all encouraging and welcoming.

If you are new to the sport, then SUP Social or SUP Team Relay are the ones for you. We will also try to ensure that any one new keen to take part in the City Surf Series has access to a SUP for each event.

Each week a 1.5km course is designed to keep the action close to the beach and work in as favourably with the evenings conditions as possible. The total distance of your event depends on your chosen division.
