The Friday before the Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut will feature a new, community based SUP event - The Djeridjinap Run. This is a social Downwind Run - not race, held on the protected waters of the Mandurah Estuary.
The Estuary is a fantastic option for learning to Downwind and SUPWA has arranged two of the best in the World to show you how.
Travis Grant is a SUP Downwind World Champion, winning the famous 52km Hawaiian Downwind epic - the Moolaki 2 Oahu 3 times. Travis will guide you thru the basics of Downwind technique - how to catch bumps and provide some insights into how he prepares for his big races. This Clinic would suit any paddler that has done the Michael Booth Clinic the previous weekend or an intermediate level paddler.
Terrene Black is also a SUP Downwind World Champion, winning the Moolaki2Ohau in 2014. Terrene is running a female only Downwind clinic - open to any ladies that are starting into Downwind paddling, in particular Unlimimted boards. Please note only 14'+ boards will be suitable for this clinic. Limited numbers will be available to hire at the venue. Please note the Terrene Black Clinic has been cancelled due to sickness. All booked in particpants will have the option of attending the Travis Grant Clinic or a refund.Djeridjinap Run
