RESULTS 2017 SEASON

This year we're teaming up with Ocean Culture to bring the series to Takapuna Beach every second Sunday.  Drop into Ocean Culture in Takapuna to sign-up and pay for the season, alternatively enter online, or download the rego form and email it in.

The Ocean Culture Winter Series, powered by Starboard, is social racing on alternate Sundays, followed by hot showers, hot soup, drinks and spot prizes (thanks to our generous community of sponsors) at the Takapuna Boating Club.  We're expecting around 100 paddlers to take part across all three disciplines, and have some great courses mapped out to take advantage of local conditions.

6-8km SUP Course, 1-2km Junior & novice Course, 10km Surfski and 10km Waka Course.

Starboard Numbered Race Shirt and Strongarm high vis cap included with season entry - only $130/$100 for six events.

Your best FOUR count towards series rankings.


Junior and Novice SUP Workshops

FREE with Winter Series season entry

New to racing or keen to get the kids on board?  Join Felipe Dos Santos and Victoria Stuart for a 30min intro to SUP racing workshop before the first three events.  This will be a skills-focussed session from 10am-1030am, leaving you 30min to rest and get ready for the 1-2km course starting at 11am.  We'll start the longer courses at 11.30am so if your family are sharing one race board, there should be time to swap over!  All-round boards, paddles and lifejackets can be provided for junior and novice race use at no extra cost.  Please let us know when you sign up if you need a board to use.  We recommend kids wear a wetsuit.


Massive thanks to Felipe and Courtney at Ocean Culture, Sharkskin, Strongarm APPAREL, Tai Paddles, Takapuna Boating Club, Ripcurl Takapuna, Balance Sports Nutrition, and Jeremy and Victoria at Starboard for making it possible!
