SurfVest Australia is Proud To Be Associated with DKG

OT2-DKGad

The DKG Blade II was released early in the 2011/12 season and once again has proven to be successful with medals at every major championships.  Refined from the Blade I, the Mark II had more streamlined hull yet maintained its characteristics in the surf and rough water that made this shape so successful.

The biggest change however came with the “internal” of the boat with modifications made to the sweep landing and rowlock housing making it much more user friendly and responsive for both rowers and sweeps.

Whether it be Ocean Thunder (pictured above), ASRL Open, State or Australian Championships, the DKG Blade has been at the forefront of performance and we will continue this tradition as we build towards the World Championships in Adelaide, November 2012.


2011 Team DKG Champions

What a fantastic couple of years it has been.  After the success of our new “Blade” hull throughout the 2009/2010 season the 2010/2011 season saw even more phenomenal success with the high performance “Blade” showered in medals from major championships.

The 2011 Aussie’s score card includes:

  • 4 out of 6 Boats in the Open Men’s A Grade Final
  • 2 out of 3 Medals in Open Men’s A Boat Final
  • 2 out of 3 Medals in Open Women’s Boat
  • 2 out of 3 Medals in Reserve Grade Boat
  • 3 out of 6 Boats in Reserve Grade Final
  • 2 out of 3 Medals in U23 Men’s Final
  • Silver in U23 Women’s Final

Across the ditch in New Zealand, our fellow Kiwi DKG rowers also excelled:

  • Piha Beach - NZ National Champions - Open Boat, Short Course
  • Piha Beach - NZ National Champions - Open Boat, Long Course
  • Piha Beach - NZ National Champions - U23 Boat, Short Course
  • Piha Beach - NZ National Champions - U23 Boat, Long Course
  • Muriwai Beach - NZ National Champions - U21 Women, Long Course
  • Red Beach - NZ National Champions - U19 Men, Long Course
  • Muriwai Beach - 2nd, U21 Women Boat
  • Muriwai Beach - 3rd, Open Boat
  • Piha Beach - “NZ Champion Team”

As we head into the 2011/2012 season we are aiming even higher with the ‘internal’ of the Blade hull getting a makeover meaning it will be even more rower and sweep friendly without sacrificing any of our current speed or performance.
