#Kayaking - Portrush in Co Antrim will welcome 150 competitors from around the globe for the 2017 World Surf Kayaking Championships later this year.

As BelfastLife reports, the event will take over Portrush’s East Strand on the Causeway Coast from 20-28 October for a week of action on waves well known to Ireland’s surfing community.

Portrush previously hosted the Northern Ireland and British Open championships in surf kayaking and waveski surfing in 2013 — the same year that Northern Ireland produced a surf kayaking world champion in Jake King.
