Hurley Classic Freestyle Weekend

Welcome to the information pages about the Hurley Classic. Here you will find all the information you need to understand, get excited and hopefully book onto everything we have going on.

It all started in 1989 as a kayak freestyle competition and that makes the event one of the oldest of its type. It has developed from this first meeting between friends in the Hurley Village car park into one of the most significant freestyle watersports events in the world.

The spirit of things at Hurley has always been about serious competition running alongside activity that encourages people of all ages into freestyle water sport. If you’re just starting out, pretty established, returning from a break or are on a National Team, this is your event. We have loads going on so you can have fun, learn new stuff, compete and socialise. You’ll meet World Champions, internationals, locals and loads of people that share your energy.


The Hurley Classic 2016 will take place on the weekend of Saturday 19th and 20th November 2016.

Online entry is now closed. If you are under 18 you will need to get your parent or guardian to complete a parental consent form.
