everything is still being planned for the event.

The surf comp is going to be alot like the one they held last year, isn't really judged like the worlds or anything that. Last year was 3 judges who basically went by personal opinion etc. One judge was also knew nothing at all about kayaking (this meant that their opinion was purely on what looked good to them).

As I said earlier everything is still being organised, but the plans being boater-cross on the taieri river on saturday, surf comp on the sunday.
More info as things get finalized. Will definetely be posted up here on rivers.

Until then enjoying the rivers, surf or whatever boating your doing.
