Portrush To Host Surf Kayaking Worlds In 2017

#SurfKayaking - The Causeway Coast will host the 2017 Surf Kayaking Worlds, as the Coleraine Times reports.

Top-flight surf kayakers from as far away as Australia will converge on Portrush – which hosted the sport's British Open in 2013 – a little over two years from how for the nine-day competition.

And it's hoped that homegrown talent, too, will have an opportunity to show their stuff on the biggest stage for their sport.

"The shoreline in Portrush has been the training ground for previous world class athletes including local men Johnny Bingham and Andy McClelland," said Canoe Association of Northern Ireland (CANI) spokesperson Ashley Hunter.

“These Northern Ireland athletes and the Northern Ireland squad will be hoping for podium finishes."
