2 day fun festival-style social event for teams of 4 paddlers, featuring a wide variety of different types of paddleboard challenge, all using the same board (provided by the organisers).  A weekend filled with a variety of entertaining (and sometimes downright silly) things to do on stand up paddleboards, with the focus very much on fun and participation. There will be prizes for winning, but plenty of other prizes too.  Come prepared for anything!

This event will be held at the wonderful Lake Hood, just by Ashburton, an hour south of Christchurch.


There will be four different categories of team:

  • All Male Team
  • All Female Team
  • Mixed Team – non-family
  • Mixed Team – Family (Must be immediate family: grandparents, parents and kids).

Participants can be any age, and need only be of sufficient ability to paddle around on flat water. Previous racing experience is not required.

The exact schedule will be confirmed nearer the day, but expect at least 10 different events over the weekend. Everyone will get their fill of fun, we promise! Entry fee will be just $200 per team. (The only other cost will be for the lakeside camping)
