Salt Kayak Festival, Sept 15/16th 2018
Book your weekend folks the Salt Kayak Festival is happening this coming week end! Located in hour north of Barcelona (Catalunya/ Spain), near the city of Gerona, the Salt River festival organized by the Salt Kayak Club; It is for the record, the birthplace of the 3 whitewater legends: Quim Fontane (Freestyle world champion), and Gerd and Aniol Serrasolses (extreme World Champions).
Some events have magic around them, these are the events that keep our sport alive because they are ran by a community of people who are in love with our sport and truly immersed in the scene. The Green race, Hurley Classic, the Charnay Beach, the King of the Alps, the Makinito Contest, the NFC, Devils race, Unleashed… very different profiles, yes, but they all share this little bit of… something more, something special.
The Salt Kayak Festival focuses on this “something” and we have developed a concept to bring together paddlers from all over Europe to celebrate our sport in the old fashioned “grab your boat, grab a beer and enjoy being in the river” way.
Organizer go about their event as follow: Tired of events that focus on the top 10% of the paddlers, the Salt Kayak Festival is about having a great community of people together, messing about in a freestyle boat, running together an excellent stretch of whitewater, racing against your buddies on the BoaterX, breaking the dancefloor during the epic SKF parties in the local club. No stress, no training schedules, no “can’t party cuz I have finals tomorrow”, no paying a fortune for registration and getting a shitty t-shirt, no having to LOOK or even PAY for accommodation – it’s all on us guys, because we love you, and we want to make things easy so you come along!
