Message from the Chairman
Hi All,

I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed as Chairman for the World Barefoot Council. I am very excited to hold this position, and to face any challenges that may come.

I would like to take a moment to thank Richard Gray for all that he has done while in the position of Chairman from February 2008 to August 2016. I am very pleased to have him continue his work on the World Barefoot Council, and in the lead up to the 2018 World Championships in Canada.

Moving forward, the future of barefooting is very exciting. With outstanding athletes and dedicated members of the World Barefoot Council the future of the sport of barefooting is in good hands.

Preparations are well underway for an amazing World Championships in Canada in 2018. We aim to make this World Championships the best yet, with improvements to be seen in the technology which will take our sport to the next level. Whether you are a barefooter or just love the sport, plan your holiday and book your seat! I assure you it is going to be great.

I hope to see you all on the water soon.


Geoff Blaauw

World Barefoot Council
