Hout Bay SUP surf star Khara Doyle to represent SA at world champs
A stand-up paddleboarder from Hout Bay, Cape Town will represent South Africa at the SUP world championships in El Salvador this month.
Khara Doyle is one of South Africa's top females in the sport and started more eight years ago back in high school.
She juggles her competitive career as a SUP surfer with a full-time job at a local school.
The 21-year-old athlete says it's been amazing to be a part of one of the fastest-growing watersports in the world.
When I started realising that there were more athletes taking interest in the sport and actually training for the sport, it was exciting to be able to do well when I knew I had more competition.Khara Doyle, Stand-up paddle boarder - Coreban SUP
