You can never keep a good man down is how the old adage goes. And it proved correct this weekend, with Bruce Campbell (aka the Cougar) coming back from injury to take out the inaugural Something Good Surf Classic.
The surf conditions might have been on the small side, but there was nothing small about the moves getting laid down. Really good day on the beach and in the water, followed up a phat after party jol at Something Good.
Rumour has it that on one wave that Mervyn got he was awarded more points for his claim than the wave itself....
Congratulations to the winners of the different divisions (shortboards and long boards) :Bruce Campbell, Mervyn Goddard, Kia Fenton, Triston Lev, Shane Simpson, Mush Hide, Michelle von Kempon, Triston Torr and Courtney Fletcher.
Shot to Mervyn, Mickey, Shirley and their crew for all the effort putting it together, and for all the sponsors for giving such rad prizes. Here's hoping this comp beckons a permanent fixture in the PE surf calendar. Some good bucks were raised for the NMBS Masters team to help them get to SA Champs at Richards Bay in August.
The surfboard raffle didn't get drawn as one of the ou's had forgotten to bring his raffle book back, so that will be done this week. So everyone's still in with a chance to win a kiff new board for only R10, yeuw!
Check out the results and some shots below. Surf shots of the comp by Luc can be found here:
