Battle of the Coast 2017

Battle of the Coast 2017

The Battle of the Coast in The Netherlands is an international known Stand Up Paddle board event were water athletes from first timers till pro’s compete against each other in various beach race formats.

“When I hear ‘ beach race’ I immediately picture an entertaining day on the water. Straight away it takes you to a fun place. Instantly the event is associated with something cool. All we need is some water, a beach for the start and finish, and a few buoy turns.” (posted January 11th, 2017 by Christopher Parker)

The Battle of the coast ( aka BOTC) will be held at The Spot Watersport center & Beach club in Zandvoort at June 4 and 5th 2017.

The weekend will feature 3 technical and distance races for both pro and fun athletes; The open NK Beach race, downwinder and sprint.

We host prone and surf ski divisions, the Fanatic demo zone, The Spot sup & kids clinics and much more Aloha fun, food, campfire and life music.

One of the goals of BOTC is to reward the best overall standup racers. For both men and women the overall champion will be rewarded by the best result combining all races.

Next to everlasting fame and fortune there are official titles to win!
