Youth Freestyle Series
Enter the Worlds top Youth Freestyle Series!
Freestyle is the dynamic sport of wave and hole riding. Flip, throw and spin your boat into vertical and aerial moves on the wave. Compete with other freestylist’s to impress the judges and more importantly the crowd!
The youth Freestyle Series consists of 5 paddling events across the UK. The day is split into two halves, with coaching in the morning followed by a fun freestyle competition in the afternoon.
Youth Freestyle Series 2009
Youth Freestyle is back for 2009 and this year promises to be even better than the last!
The series kicks off on the 19th April at Llangollen it then moves to the Nene on the 14th June, then on to Boutlers on the 11th July and finishes with a final at Nottingham on the 13th Sept. Due to course updates there will unfortunately be no Teeside event this year.
The Youth Freestyle series is a number of one-day events aimed at progressing white-water paddlers. It is open to any paddlers aged 18 years old and under, with a fairly reliable white-water roll who want to improve their freestyle or white water paddling or who want to take part in a fun freestyle competition. It doesn't matter if you have no previous experience of competition or if you're on the GB team - the competition rules cater for all levels of paddler, and spot prizes at many of the events ensure that the people who provide the most entertainment go home with a prize.
The 2008 series attracted over 100 entrants to the Nottingham event and due to these increasing numbers we need to bring the day into line. Each day will now consist of paddling workshops followed by a fun freestyle competition and where sites (and time) allow a river race.
Further details of the changes to this years series will be available at www.youthfreestyle.co.uk The website should be up and running by mid March so we can start accepting entries
