The 12 Towers Ocean Paddle Festival is now entering it’s 8thyear and has fast become one of the premier races in Australia for SUP, Ocean Ski and Prone.
Whether you’re a competitor looking to tackle the towers or a keen fan of the sport who wants to watch the action, this is a great reason to hit the Gold Coast!
Extending the long distance course to 17km’s, the Open Ocean Race from world famous Snapper Rocks to picturesque North Burleigh Hill will provide a battle ground for the best in the business. Passing by 12 Lifeguard Beach Surveillance Towers (Hence establishing the race name) competitors will round an inflatable “turning buoy” approximately 200 meters from the centre of North Burleigh Beach, before making their final way to the dry sand finish line. Now with the added “short course” dash from Palm Beach SLSC through North Burleigh Hill in the schedule, this stepping stone to the longer distance is within many paddlers grip.
Head over to Tackle the Towers for more information.
