Surfski Captain:  Dave Harker

The Surfski division of Pirates has been a revelation to both ex-amateur life guards, river paddlers and surfski paddlers.

Pirates has always been a club that embraced surfski paddling as a sport and started the oldest surfski race – the Pirates Umhlanga race – over 50 years ago. We also host the Wall & Back series on Friday evenings in the months of October & November.

More recently the surf skiers established the Sergeants group of paddlers that comprises of Pirates members who paddle every Tuesday & Thursday morning, before enjoying an awesome breakfast prepared by Stan and then going to work.  We currently have 42 members on our WhatApp group and we regularly have more than ten guys meeting to paddle each morning.

Pirates has been awesome for us paddlers and we are very fortunate to be able to keep our surfskis in racks provided by the club.

We welcome any Pirate member to join us for a paddle.

Thank you and welcome!
