2013 NI Surf Kayak / Surfkayaks.com League Comp 1 Rerun

It was third time lucky for the re-run of the NI Surf Kayak league comp 1 which ran on Saturday 24th August at Magheraroarty Co Donegal.

We were blessed with a warm and sunny day with light off shore winds,this with the combination of a 2.5 meter swell made for perfect surfing conditions.

The comp kicked off in the morning with the development squad and plastic class competing on the beach at Magheraroarty with some good surfing skills on display from all our young developing surf paddlers. After 2 heats of the development squad we had a final between brother and sister Dualta and Meabh Lynch, as well as Zeke Wilson and Emil Lazerescu with Zeke taking top spot.

Proceedings for the afternoon moved over to the reef for the High Performance and IC classes. By this time the waves on the reef were steep fast and shallow due to the dropping tide with some close fought contests between the competitors.

The HP Open was won by Dessie Mc Glinchey, It was great to see Dessie back competing again after an absence of almost 2 years, he was back on fine form, so keep her lit Dessie! With 6 paddlers in the IC Open heat you had to make every wave count and at this stage the reef was getting super shallow and every mistake was punished by a too close visit to the rocks on the reef. It didn't deter Kieran Mc Dyre who took top spot in the IC Open.

A special well done to young development squad member Zeke Wilson who took part in every class on the day and surfed the waves on the reef for his first time and did really well.

Thanks to all who took part and helped out to make it another great comp in the NI League. Looking forward to the British Open early next month.

James, Rapid Kayaking.

2013 World IC Surf Kayak Champion - Jake King

Congratulations to Jake King who won the IC category at the World Surf Kayak Championships in Queensland, Australia.

This was Jake's first year competing in the Seniors and by all accounts he surfed brilliantly to secure this title, beating the previous world champion, Edu Etxeberria from the Basque country.

Everyone at the Northern Ireland Surf Kayak Club would like to congratulate Jake on his victory and look forward to seeing him again in the water soon.

Congratulations also go to the other NI Squad members who travelled to Australia for the competition.

World Championships Report

At 2am BST on 21 July 2013 at Maroochydore beach in Queensland Australia, 18 year old Derry native Jake King realised his dream, Surf Kayak World Champion.

For two weeks Jake had challenged and beat the best surf kayakers in the world to finally achieve this goal.

In the final Jake prevailed against the current men’s longboat world champion Edu Etxeberria , the reigning masters world champion Darren Bason and the reigning junior short boat champion Julen Arrizibala.


Jake has been surf kayaking with the CANI surf kayak club since he was 10 years old. The Club has had tremendous success over the years producing five previous world champions and now Jake adds his name to the list, Chris Hobson, Jonny Bingham, Andy McClelland, Kevin Quinn and Jake’s older brother Corin.

Jake is no stranger to success having won European and British titles as a junior and competing at the last world championships as a junior was placed 2nd, but winning the world title as an 18 year old has surpassed all his expectations.


Jake after being interviewed on Australian TV relayed the following message  “To finally win my first world title feels amazing and words cannot describe how i am feeling at this moment. There is a lot of people i would like to thank for my success.

First of i would like to thank my family,especially my mum and dad, also i would like to thank my Coaches, CANI and Friends. I would like to Thank my sponsors, Random Surfkayaks, Gath helmets, Snapdragon spraydecks and SPORT NI without whos backing I could not compete and this level.

Finally i would like to thank my big brother and training partner Corin King, without him and his Support I would not have got this far. Rounds are on me BRING ON THE BEER”.
