King of the Harbour 2010 - Video

Wednesday, December 01, 2010 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

Round 5 of the Epic Kayaks/Bing Lee/LG Ocean Series the King of the Harbour from Long Reef to Manly Wharf. Difficult conditions for most paddlers as the ocean had been churning for a week, lot's of reflected waves but a good underlying swell and wind at your back. Those with good stability made the most of it.

Ocean Series Race 4 Narrabeen Downwind Challenge 2010

Thursday, November 18, 2010 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

Running from Pittwater to Narrabeen Beach, the fourth race on the Bing Lee LG EPIC Kayaks Oceanseries is a bit more than half of the Epic Kayaks 20 Beaches. It’s a no-brainer of a course: start in flat water, go around Barrenjoey Headland and chase the runs until you see the biggest surf club on the Northern Beaches!

Pacifica Downwind Series Race 1

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

Inaugural race of the Pacific Downwind Series in NSW put on by a couple of good mates Kevy and Trev featuring OC1, SUP and Ski paddlers battling it out over three races for a free trip to Hawaii from Sponsors GNC Livewell. Kamanu Composites team member Travis Grant flew in from Qld to take on the locals and had some work to do to snatch away the airfare as did first time SUP paddler Dave Kissane having a year off ski to have some fun. Don't miss the near disaster at Barrenjoey Headland as Top Dog and Dingo Deans do their best to smash their OC1's.

Fantastic Location for a downwind race and boy did Mother nature turn it on. It's not often you get a good downwind within a race and the competitors lapped it up. Awesome close finish once again, nail biting stuff between Jeremy Cotter and Bruce Taylor in the last few K's

King of the Coast 2010

Tuesday, November 02, 2010 / Posted by Rambo / comments (5)

A Moffat's Run is always a lot of fun, i've done hundreds of them. Yes this is my home run and the King of the Coast race took this route. What an awesome race between Jeremy Cotter and Ben Allen with one second separating them at the finish-line. That wasn't the only battle though, with Ken Wallace and youngster Corey Hill dicing all the way. Make sure you watch the battles right to the end,it's worth it. Of course i had the "box-seat" following and filming from a Jetski on an adrenaline high. Ya wouldn't be dead for quids.

Filmed entirely by Ocean Sports Media

Enjoy the video
Cheers Rambo

The third race of the Bing Lee LG Ocean Series in association with Epic Kayaks got off to a great start on a picture perfect Spring day. This is always a tough paddle along the rockwalls with the backwash making life difficult for the inexperienced paddlers.

Smartline Fenn Cup 2010 Race 1

Thursday, September 23, 2010 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

No wind/wrong direction combined with a 3-4 meter swell resulted in a two laps out and back course change for Race1 of the Smartline Fenn Cup Downwind series for 2010. The start/finish and re-entry into Fisherman's Beach was always going to be interesting with the large swell and shore break.

The race turned into another Cotter/Allen battle and an interesting run up the finish chute. Also in the mix was Ironman Legend Zane Holmes and Ironwoman Krystyl Smith.

US Surfski Championships - VIDEO

Monday, August 30, 2010 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

San Francisco bay is a unique venue for a surfski race – the wind blows every afternoon funneling through the Golden Gate, and the currents play a huge role in the conditions.

Wow what a fantastic race, so enjoyable to video and the support i had from the WaveChaser people was awesome. Just watch the video, no need for comments from me.

A big thank you to Vineet Buch for making the video possible, someone had to get me there.

"Aussie Aloha" ... that's the best way i can describe The Saltwater Festival.

Video is only just over 4 mins long and is mostly of the seaway entrance. The jetski video platform was delayed so we missed much of the race, these things happen sometimes.

Still, awesome race, great conditions and everyone had a great time.

New Zealand's Premiere Outrigger changes race, held at beautiful Takapuna Beach Auckland. A host of Local and international warriors battle it out for line honors and personal fulfillment in this fabulous International Event.

On a personal note, i would like to thank Race Organizer Lance Richards and Committee for allowing me the opportunity to help promote this Race, a true "Jewel in the Crown" of Outrigger paddling in New Zealand, and a must attend event for any International paddler wanting to experience the local culture and hospitality of the locals. Thank you also to my host and new friends, Steve Muir and partner Wendy, you made my stay most enjoyable.

King of the Coast

Sunshine Coast Paddlers have not had an all craft downwind Ocean race since the Point To Point race in the late '90s. Put together by Kirk Jarrott and Shane Dalziel in just under 4 weeks, it drew paddlers from as far a way as NSW. When the paddling community come together like this it's awesome, what a fun race.
