East Coast Kayak Challenge
Felix Frey (Kayakstore.se) and Gero Priebe from (Hobie Fishing Europe) sat down and asked themselves why there wasn’t more kayak competitions’ in Scandinavia. So they decided to start ECKC back in 2016 with a location in the middle of Sweden in order to reach people from all over Scandinavia and Europe.
It was a big success with the first edition of ECKC. Lake Roxen showed all kind of weather conditions but the anglers did great. The winner was Jesper Aksvig from Denmark and he got the renowned spot at the Hobie Fishing Worlds 7th.
We had great support from many sponsors and the price table for 2017 valued more than 4000 Euros.
And for 2018 it only got better. More anglers and even more support. Daniel van der Post from the Netherlands managed to secure a win on Lake Glan which held the ECKC in 2018. Just behind Daniel van der Post was Finn Sloth Hansen and Dennis BomBom Skou both from Denmark.
For the third edition, ECKC will move a little more south again.To Lake Boren that’s a very famous fishery for big Pike and Perch. There will be a optional pre-fish day on Friday the 3th of May and then there will be two competition days (4th & 5th of May). There will be a dinner on Saturday evening together with everyone and you will be able to bring tents or caravans to stay at the event site just 50 meters from the water.
For 2019 we have Strandbadets Camping as a partner and they offer cabins and a big campsite where you can bring your car, caravan or tent. Let us know about how you want to stay at the event.
We welcome you to a great event with amazing people and some great fishing. See you in May!
