2008 US Surf Kayak Nationals and the Nor-Cal Surf Kayak Contest

The 2008 US Surf Kayak Nationals and the Nor-Cal Surf Kayak Contest will be held on 25th and 26th of October at Davenport Landing in beautiful Northern California!

Davenport Landing is located one mile north of the town of Davenport and ten miles north of Santa Cruz. The coastline faces west and the wave form on a number of submerged reefs. In October it can be paradise, hell or somewhere in between. The break holds up well to large NW swells , wave faces in the 15' range have been experienced in past contests.

ACA waivers will be signed Saturday morning prior to the first heat. Bring your ACA card as proof of membership. A $5.00 charge will be collected if you don't have proof of ACA membership.

Each category will surf one round each on Saturday and Sunday. The final rounds will be Sunday afternoon.

You should come prepared for all types of weather conditions.

Pit toilets are available at the site. There is no running water.

Plans are being made for a Saturday night get-together. Stay tuned for more on that.

The closest motel to to the Landing is the Mission Inn in Santa Cruz. 831-425-5455.

Throughout the years we've eaked out a relationship of harmony with the boardie crowd. We'd like to keep the relationship civil and ask a few things of you.

*All contestants pre-surfing the event surf only at the north side of the landing.
*Don't park your vehicles on the west side of the road north of the restrooms.
*Surf well and make us proud!

More info to come soon!
