Ocean Racing

Ocean Racing

Ocean racing is an exciting new discipline of the ECA intended to encompass the long distance surfski events, sea kayak racing events, sea touring and long distance out rigger events. 

For many years Ocean Racing (Surfski) is a growing discipline in our sport.

There have been a lot of different events in Europe.

The ECA Board of Directors agreed in hosting the EUROCUP for Surfski.

The next steps:

  • Launch of the ECA SURF SKI SERIES.
  • Increase the number of countries participating in these events to make it more global and attract the attention of world audiences.
