Our series is kicked off with 30k Paddling competition from Strömfors to Hirvikoski and back. Route crosses two lakes that might provide so chopy waters. Most of the route is sheltered river and very easy to navigate. Some stream is expected close to turning point at Hirvikoski.
Rules for the event are fairly simple, you can participate with any paddling equipment you prefer: Surfski’s, Kayaks, Canoes and SUP boards are all allowed, as long as you paddle. Also paddling with your friend with double kayak is allowed (you both need to register though).
We also carry a limited stock of Surfski’s, Kayaks and Canoes that can be rented for the event for a price of 50 € if you do not own one. Please contact us for availability.
