On August 21st, World Kayak will be in Pacific City Oregon for it’s first ever ocean surf event. Jeffery Steehler, US West junior team member will be on hand to compete and is also the main organizer of the event. With Worlds looming in October in the Outer Banks, this will give Jeffery one last event before heading to North Carolina to compete with the world’s best. Come on out and show your support or compete with some of the best in the region. If you have never tried this kind of kayaking, I can personally tell you it is one of the most exhilarating experiences ever. If you think the river has power, wait until you have a wall of water behind you that rivals a dozen rivers.  Demo boats will be available and refreshments will be provided. If you are nervous about competing, I can tell you that all prizes are awarded for participation and our sponsors include Jackson Kayak, Chaco, Immersion Research, Stoneyboater, Kokatat, Shred Ready, Rapid Transit Media and Astral Buoyancy.

When the rivers are flooded or too low, ocean surfing is a great alternative and I personally have a blast in my Jackson 4Fun. For the more serious surfer, Valley Surf Kayaks makes a great surf boat as well.
