Westcoast Boardriders results and pics

Westcoast Boardriders event #2 went down this weekend with a bang. Day 1 saw some clean 2-3ft glassy conditions, and some epic surfing. We saw some of SA’s top surfers putting a a huge display including the likes of Shane Thorne, Ryan Payne, Diran Zak and Brandon Benjamin. On day 2 the swell dropped off a bit and we moved down to Derde’s for some fun wave’s and good surfing. The contest was however put on hold when organizers had to remove a man (Justin Kemp) while attempting to surf the contest in his ‘tiny winy pokerdot bikini’ (the bikini was later returned to it’s rightful owner)

The level of surfing in this event was amazing to see.  The public and brand support was fantastic  and of course seeing a surf community ‘Weskus’ putting their heads and hearts together to take our sport and lifestyle to the next level. Thanks to everyone involved.

All funds raised went to the Shark Spotters Program to ensure our playground is kept as safe as possible for all ocean users.
