Carnival now at Omaha

21st November 2009

Weather and surf conditions force a switch in venue

The Surf Sports carnival scheduled for this Sunday 22nd at North Piha has been switched to Omaha Beach.
Because of a change in the weekend’s weather forecast and the expectations of a growing swell on the west coast, the first Inter-Club event of the summer will now be held at the Northland venue. Officials felt that the conditions at North Piha would not be conducive to a successfully run event.
The unchanged programme will feature the following events: Surf Race, Board, Ski, Flags, Sprints & Ironman. Racing for surf boats and surf canoes will also take place. Surf boat events will contribute points to the district surf boat championships. The team managers’ briefing is at 8.30 am. The first event starts at 9.00 am.
