Jeep Apparel and the Independent on Saturday -South Coast Surf Carnival

The countdown begins & registration evening

The countdown begins with only 19 days to go till the official event registration evening at Phatboyz. The carnival is hotting up with SA’s top exponents in each discipline practising and strategising for the event. After many years experience at this event most surfers have opted to specialise in one division, with the likes of Johno Rosslind (WP) and Brandon Ribbink (KZN) focusing on the SUP event. A new entry to the event but not new to the world of surfing is Gary van Rooyen(WP) who has entered three divisions (kite, SUP, and Over 50 longboard) now ladies and gentlemen we all know how Gary is going to feel come Sunday Afternoon – shame, but his is fit !!!! His daughter Chelsea has also entered the SUP event so the gauntlet is down for more ladies in the SUP event.

Peter Petersen (WP) will be defending the Kitesurfing wave riding event but with the recent “weeks” of relentless North Easterly winds local kiters will be pumped up and raring to go. Early entries to the kitesurfing see Alwin van Breda (KZN) Gary van Rooyen (WP) and Ocean 2 Air Kiteboardings Rob Chrystal and
Sipho Dlamini
The Longboard open division will be wide open this year as Jason Ribbink (KZN) is a very doubtful starter due to injury, Mouse Moir will be in action on another continent , so as mentioned this means the Open event is wide wide open, Jeep & Bilt rider Dylan Macleod (PE) will be one to look out for, also hoping to clinch the title is last years Jnr winner Scott Lefevre (KZN) who excelled in the conditions last year and punters will have him as a hot favourite, Brad Trickett (KZN) will be a dark horse on his new Natural Curve Stealth bomber as will Maisch fins’ Justin Maisch (SKZN) who is always cool and collected and improves each year at the event. Also look out for Ross Lahana (EP) and Andrew Bance (WP) who enter every year and are always in the hunt.......

The ladies division is actually full with 8 entries already confirmed so if any ladies still want to enter they better get hold off me soonest – send you entries !!  On the other hand the Juniors are extremely slack with only 2 entries to date hmmmmm....... Are there any junior longboarders in KZN ?

The over 35 and over 50 divisions are shaping up quite nicely with the likes of defending over 35 winner Craig Daniel on a mission to win, Glen Thompson (SC) is also back for another taste in the SUP and over 35 division.

The over 50 division will be a good one this year with the likes of Durbanites
Dave Hansen, Shaun Selman, Attie vd Pas,  Mike Larmont  Dave van den Berg & Gary van Rooyen (WP) already booked in and raring to go......

The question is what will Scotties deliver this year, I believe we are due a “mellow weekend” with cooking surf for all....
Thanks to all who have entered to date from around the country.... It really is a treat that the event is so well supported nationally
