Stand Up Paddleboad Racing at West Lakes this weekend…
Naish NISCO racing will be coming to Adelaide and combining with the WindSup "Round The Island" race on Sunday the 6th of April thanks to Naish Australia, WindSup, SA Sup Crew and Onboard Surf-Originals.
NISCO is an 12'6 inflatable One design Stand up paddleboard.
The concept is everyone racing on the same board, the boards are 30 inches wide and are really stable, so anyone can have a go.
These boards are so much fun!! And the racing is really close as they are all the same speed!
Racing will consist of 3 events. 200m, 500m and a distance race in the NISCO class. This event will be the Adelaide Leg of the national tour and will count towards qualification to the NISCO National titles and World titles later in the year.
Racing will be held at Tiranna Way Reserve, West Lakes.
Race rego will open at 11am
The official Welcome and race brief will be at 12pm
Racing to start at 12:30pm.
All NISCO short races will be concluded by 4pm with one big race to go.
The annual Round The Island race. The race is 6km and you can choose to compete in either the Cruising, Masters, Ladies or Men's Divisions. The divisions will be handicapped with staggered starts so the slowest group go's first.
$25 entry fee to be payed on the day, which includes BBQ lunch and a NISCO t-shirt.
Don't have a board for the round the island? No worries, there will be close to 15 NISCO boards available and 10 hire boards and paddles for use on the day.
