SABA 6A rated event
Boland Bodyboarding Association together with REEF South Africa and Coca-Cola has once again raised the bar to make sure the most popular 6A rated SABA event is back on the South African circuit for the 6th time. This will be the richest event on the circuit this year. This year's pro division prize money adds up to R40 000 with the winner taking home R20 000 in cash. Previous winners of the 20k are Marc McCarthy, Darren Halse, Mafoos Lombard and Tristan Roberts. Who will be taming the West Coast this year and take home the big cheque ?
REEF South Africa, once again will be the main product sponsor making sure this event is enriched with their world class bodyboarding products worth R25 000. All REEF bodyboards, surfboards and accessories have been designed, shaped and manufactured to the highest quality and standards to allow riders maximum performance. The REEF range of bodyboards suit all riders from beginners to advanced. Go check out the REEF online store (http://reefshop.co.za/
) for their latest products. Support those who support the sport.
The familiar Coke Cola truck will be providing us with lots of entertainment again while enjoying some of the finest Coke beverage. Happy sounds and all commentating will be heard from the truck while riders compete to be king of the West Coast.
The event will be held as a roaming event spanning over 3 days. The dates for the event is the 25th-27th March 2016. Like the previous years, the same area of coast will be utilised for the event which stretches from the start of the gravel road before Muisbosskerm to the start of the toll road towards Elandsbay. The Cederburg Municipality has given the event exclusive access to this area of coast for the duration of the event.
The country's top bodyboarders will all be ready to do battle in the best waves the coast has to offer. This event is never one to remain calm when it comes to action both in and out of the water with activities going on throughout the 3 days of competition for everyone from the riders to the supporters.
A Pro free surf session will be held during a time when the event is not running or on hold. This will give the event riders a chance to "adopt a grom" and to give back to the sport which has enriched us in so many ways. It is also a chance for the local kids to surf with their favorite bodyboarders, and have pictures taken with them.
A division for the local Lamberstbay development riders will be running again. These riders will compete in the main event but in their own division. This will give them a feel for competing in bigger events and a chance to represent the Boland team at the SA Nationals event held in Onrus later this year.
Get your entries in now to compete in some of the best waves the west coast has to offer.
See you in the water bru!
