Where ever you want!

The Paddler Virtual Champs are back for 2024!
It’s simple. Paddle 12km in whatever paddle craft you want (3km for U18 paddlers and SUP or join our new 6km division) over the month of January 2024, upload your completion time and GPS trace and you’ll be in to win.

The Paddler Virtual Champs is open to all paddle craft (kayak, surf ski, multisport boat, waka ama, SUP, singles, doubles etc). We want any and every paddler to get involved in whatever way you can. 

Times can be recorded and submitted between the dates of 1st and 31st January 2024. Paddlers can enter as many times as they wish, and every submission gives you the chance to win spot prizes throughout the month. Only your best time will be included in the final results of each division.

For ocean ski paddlers, the event is included in the 2023-24 Darcy Price NZ Ocean ski series.  Please note the 6km division is not included in the DP series.
