Surf carnival now at Omaha

18th December 2009

Carnival moving to Omaha Beach with the emphasis on individual racing

The Interclub surf carnival scheduled for Sunday 20th December at Bethells Beach will now take place at Omaha.
The switch has been forced by a predicted 2m-3m swell on Auckland's west coast this weekend, as well as onshore winds. Just four weeks ago, Omaha became the venue for the first Interclub event of the summer because of rugged conditions at the planned venue of North Piha.
Sunday's surf carnival is again of key importance for surf athletes wanting to be selected for the Auckland Lion Foundation Surf League teams. Back-to-back individual racing features on the programme which will see the following events: 3 x Swim, 3 x Board, 3 x Ski, 3 x Sprint, Beach Flags.
Racing for surf boats and surf canoes will also take place.
