Boogyology host their 2nd Club Contest
posted by André de Vries on 28th November 2005
Boogyology Bodyboarding Club of East London is having their second competition on Saturday, 10 December 2005 at the Gonubie Main Beach. The entire Gonubie Beachfront has been booked, so if there are not enough waves we’ll be able to move to Point or even Black Rock that served us kindly during our first compo held on 2 July 2005.
Competition Entry Forms are available from Extreme Sports Co. at Vincent Park in East London and from Ratz Surf in the SuperSpar Centre in Gonubie or you can download from sixty40 by visiting the contest page through the link at the bottom of this page. Entry fees are R25 and R35 if entering for more than one division. Provision is made for groms, juniors, men, pro’s (open), ladies (open) and dropknee (open). The closing date for entries is Wednesday, 7 December 2005 and no late entries can be accepted. The contest briefing will be held at 07:00 on the morning of the compo at the Lifesavers Shack, Gonubie Main Beach. For more information, please contact Simon on 073 949 8021 or Albert on 076 378 9385.
The club has received enthusiastic support for this competition and it will be sponsored by Empty Vessel Creations, a clothing company set up by local bodyboarder Shane Rielly, Extreme Sports Co., Mochachos Chicken Villages, Gonubie Hotel, Ratz Surf and Signs Unlimited. From this it can be seen that there will be good prizes to compete for.
This will be the first event of the Club to be sanctioned by the Border Bodyboarding, the Provincial body that has recently been re-established. Wavecrest Distributors (WCD) has agreed to consider sponsorship of one of the Border development riders for 2006. This rider will have a contract with WCD and will receive a Scott Hawaii bodyboard, a pair of Viper or CustomX fins and some clothing items. Border Bodyboarding has decided to elect the best candidates from the competition on 10 December and put their names and profiles forward to WCD, who will then make the final decision. So, there is clearly a lot to gain from taking part! WCD would prefer a rider of colour or a lady rider, so the riders from these two groups are especially encouraged to come and take part.
I just want to remind you again that the Boogyology Bodyboarding Club is run by Simon de Vries, a Grade 10 learner at Hudson Park High, and Albert Snyman, a Grade 11 learner at Hoërskool Grens.
Remember that you will be riding against most of your friends. This is a club compo and there is very little pressure, just great fun! Use this opportunity to get some competition experience before the Border trials next year in April, May or June.
Boogyology Bodyboarding strives to promote strong Christian values for young bodyboarders to learn team ethics and self esteem.
