Over 100 entrants participated in the 2016 LIzzard Summer Surf competition at uMhlanga Main Beach. While conditions on Saturday were tricky with rain and small surf, on Sunday surfers were greeted with glassy 3-4 ft waves and very little wind, so it was game on!
The Just Juice Tag event was again the highlight of the weekend with local uMhlanga Club ‘Wave Wizards’ taking on their fierce rivals from North Beach Durban ‘North Swell Club’ and claiming victory. The Open Men Division was won by Ballito local Richard Kidd who displayed solid consistent surfing over the two days. Cape Town surfer Natasha Van Greunan showed some real talent and not only took home the win in the Open Ladies prize but was also awarded surfer of the weekend. Hurricane Surfboards awarded the custom made board valued at R5 200 to Matt Kruger as the surfer who not only surfed brilliantly, but also has a great attitude and approach to people and the ocean.
