South Coast Classic: Day Two Results and Report Back
posted by Janet Middleton on 6th May 2013
Two of the South Coast Classic 2013 in Margate
dawned with much excitement, with clean swell and offshore winds along the
Southern Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
main beach offered the largest and most contestable conditions with 4-6 foot
swells, with some larger sets occasionally coming through.
morning began with the Pro Division quarter finals. The paddle was near
impossible, so wave selection was critical and every wave chosen could make or
break the heat for a competitor. Mark McCarthy and Terence Pieters wowed the
judges and spectators with huge inverts.
Junior, Mens and Drop Knee divisions impressed in their semi finals with great
control in the big surf. As the day wore
on, the wind turned, making conditions more difficult for the finals. The
riders struggled to find clean lips, but made the best of the conditions and
the most deserving riders prevailed.
the Junior riders delighted the crowd with backflips and inverts.
The Pro Final
was an incredible one, with technical and big riding showing off their skills.
Michael Ostler, Iain Campbell and Mark McCarthy pulled off huge inverts, with
Mark and Terence Pieters bringing massive backflips into the mix. The
competition was fierce and the Pro riders gave the crowd an awesome show!
Ostler, from Central Kwa-Zulu Natal came out on top with his final invert
giving him that one up on the other riders.
massive thanks goes out to our sponsors for helping make this event possible:
