Over the months of October, November and December the NZ Freestyle Kayak Series will be a social undertaking to bring kayakers together to compete for Open Men's, Open Women's and Junior titles. Each event will see points being awarded in relation to participants' final placing. The participants with the highest points score in each class after the three events will be given the title of Series Champion. Event one was the recent Bliss-Fest surf competition. Event two of the series will be held at the Tekapo Whitewater Course on November 3 and 4. The Tekapo event will also have various coaching clinics, a boater cross race and a social rodeo. Event three of the Series will be held December 22 and 23 at Bottom Hole, Kaituna river.
