Deep South Downwind


Jan 21


Lake Wakatipu/Queenstown

The Deep South Downwind is brand new event on the ocean paddling calendar for 2023!

Queenstown and the surrounding mountains will present a spectacular backdrop as paddlers hope to make the most of the summer thermal winds on Lake Wakatipu. The race start location will be determined based on the wind conditions, with a spectacular Lake Whakatipu course taking in 25km of dramatic downwind paddling.  

This will be the 3rd race in the 2022/23 Darcy Price Series and is open to Ocean Ski/surfski, Waka Ama & SUP. There is also a multisport option.

Join us this summer for an epic weekend in the heart of adventure-junkie paradise.
