Over 150 Bodyboarders Expected to Converge on Margate

posted by Olivia Jones on 18th March 2005

Over 150 of the country’s finest bodyboarders are expected to converge on Margate Main Beach (KZN South Coast) from 1 to 3 April for the ninth annual Wimpy Rossi Pro-Am. Following last year’s record turnout as well as an increase in event status, organisers are anticipating a bumper number of entries.

Upgraded to a 5-A rated contest, the Wimpy Rossi Pro-Am now boasts cash and prizes to the value of R30 000 which will be split amongst the various divisions. The Wimpy Rossi Pro-Am is the third event on the hotly contested 2005 SABA circuit and is hosted by the Southern KZN Bodyboarding Association.

Divisions include pro, boys, juniors, men, women, masters, drop knee, under 12 boys, under 16 girls and a development section which is designed to provide a golden opportunity for young stars to showcase their talent.

In addition to the generous prizes there will be valuable South African Bodyboarding Association (SABA) rating points up for grabs which accumulate over the year to determine the ultimate SABA champion as well as national team selection.

Organisers have opted to utilise a three day contest window period in order to stage the two day event in the best surf that the venue has to offer.

This popular tournament is sponsored by the Wimpy Margate and Rossi Bodyboards.

Entries close on 29 March. To download entry forms interested riders should visit the contest page through the link at the bottom right of this page.
