Terms and Conditions


     This competition is aimed at promoting surf kayaking to young paddlers. As such we would like to see young people enjoying any aspect of surf kayaking, on the water or otherwise. We are not necessarily looking for amazing skills, but would really like to see juniors having loads of fun and give them the opportunity to see themselves on the same platform as some of the best-known paddlers in the sport. 


The competition will close on the 25th of each month. The best photo will be chosen by our panel and the winner will headline the following month’s contest, however, we will ask for your permission first. The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered in to.

    On occasion, we may be able to get small prizes which will be handed out to winners shortly after contact has been made. Any prizes are non-transferable and there are no cash alternatives. Credit will be given to the parent/guardian/ person who took the picture (if over 18)
