MORE INFO

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.”

The Battle of the coast ( aka BOTC) will be held at The Spot Watersport centre & Beach club in Zandvoort at May 5th and 6th 2018.

We are very proud to pronounce that the BOTC will be an official EuroTour stop. The weekend will feature technical and distance races for both pro and fun athletes; The NK Beach race, down winder and sprint. We host a prone division, the Fanatic demo zone, The Spot kids salt water clinics and much more Aloha fun, food and music. One of the traditions of the BOTC is to reward the best overall stand-up racer and crown them as King and Queen. For both men and women the overall champion will be rewarded by the best result combining all races.
