New Records Set at the 2019 King of the Cut

In sunny conditions with south-west winds picking up 15 to 18 knots, over 100 competitors entered from around Australia and overseas and began the 24-kilometer Stand Up Paddleboard race from Dawesville Cut to Secret Harbour on Sunday, December 1st.

Australians James Casey from Sydney and Angela Jackson from the Gold Coast were crowned the respective King and Queen of the Cut crossing the finish line at Secret Harbour first in the men and women’s categories of the 2019 Stand Up Surf Shop King Of The Cut. Both smashed the race records. Casey with a time of 1:40:18 finished 7:06 minutes faster than his time last year and 56 seconds faster than the record that was set by Jake Jensen in 2017. Angela Jackson won the double, the Queen of the Cut and the first 14-foot board, with a time of 2:05:13 smashing her own record by 2:28 minutes that she set in 2017.

James Casey has won back-to-back Stand Up Surf Shop King Of The Cut, this year in 2019 and 2018 and he also finished second but on a foiling SUP at the Shaw and Partners Doctor last Saturday.

The eighth Stand Up Surf Shop King Of The Cut, Australia’s most prestigious Stand Up Paddle (SUP) race and one of the world’s fastest downwinders, included competitors from Japan, Singapore, New Caledonia, Switzerland, Ireland, New Zealand, Greece, Sweden and across Australia.
