SupWA Events at Halls Head Beach (Doddies Beach)
The Half Cut Challenge The week prior to the Stand Up Surf Shop King of the Cut is known as West Oz Downwind week. Paddlers come from across the country and around the world to get their fix of runs in before the main race on the weekend. The world famous Cut Run is the first half of the King of the Cut course - 12kms running from Dawesville Cut to Doddies Beach at Halls Head. This year we are holding a 5 day long time GPS trial for the fastest time to do the course.
Every day, starting from Sunday the 24th (1200) to Thursday the 28th of November (1800) you can log your fastest time. Times close at the end of each day (at 1800) and the paddler with the fastest time will be presented with the leaders singlet for each age group. The singlet will change hands each day, if the time is beaten.
Start - from the green Starboard navigation marker at the end of the Southern Groyne at Daweville.
Finish - Doddies Beach (the east side of Roberts Point) - between the beach and first yellow marker.
The SUP truck will be available for transport to the start. This is a paid service provided by a 3rd party transport company.
