Australia's World Class DownWind Run
The Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut is held along on the beautiful Peel Coast line where the famed, powerful and consistent West Coast Seabreeze blows perfect, un-interrupted runners like an endless conveyor belt.
This year the event will be tracked live from the lovely people at Track Me Live. Follow the link for competitor details, tracking and results:

In it's 7th year, the 2018 edition of the Australian Downwind Championship - the King of the Cut has some new changes:
1. The Half Cut - a shorter 10km race.This event will be held on the same day as the main race. The Oceanside run is the first half of the famous KotC run, fantastic medium to large runners propelling you down the Peel Coast finishing in Mandurah.
2. The Djeridjinap Run Supporting Ocean Heroes - Estuary Downwind Fun Run on Friday night for all levels. Fantastic way to learn to Downwind in a sheltered environment with friendly mentors. Proudly supporting
3. The Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut Pro Class is now a separate entry class - this year sees the Pro Class (Male & Female) as a separate division which brings the event in line with all the major prize money events in the world. To be eligible for prize money you need to enter the Pro Class division.
4. New Prone Paddle Board Class - This year's event is open to Prone Paddle Boards.
5. Foiling Class - Is now an official division for the 2018 KotC. Whilst this division won't compete the Open Prize money (or the line honours KotC trophy), Enviroplumb has once again kindly put up a $500 prize for 1st Foiling Board across the line.

In accordance with the SUPAA Rule Book, there will be a Male and Female Pro Class that will compete for the allocated prize money. The Male Pro Class is an Open Board Division, so both 14' and UL will contest the Prize money and overall King of the Cut Trophy, not the age group trophies. The Female Pro Class is a 14' division only. There is a Female UL division, but this is not a Pro Class division.
All other competitors will register in their age group. Age group trophies are allocated, but not prize money. Note - Your age group is determined by your age on the 1st of Jan 2019.
