Equipment provided as requested (in registration) 

  • If you can bring a boat/pdf/helmet from your club, that would be helpful. Labelling equipment reduces lost items!
  • Freestyle or river boat for wave pool
  • Slalom races can be done in any boat, but sharing composite boats will be fastest
  • Slalom head-to-head will start on the ramp so half-slice/creek/river running boat is best
  • Polo boats provided

Warm clothes for in water and dry for on-land are recommended as the air can be chilly.

Personal Water bottles will help avoid plastic use
