The SA SUP Wave Champs is upon us, and this year we are at a fixed venue – Surfers Corner Muizenberg, which is celebrating 100 years of surfing.
It was in 1919 that Heather Price was recorded as the first South African to ride a wave. Since then, millions of waves have been riden by hundreds of thousands of surfers from all over the world. So, we thought it very appropriate to stage our 2019 SA SUP Wave Championships at the world famous Surfer Corner.
This event will see athletes from around the country compete for glory as well as to gain points towards 2020 SA team selection. Watch out for the likes of World SUP Sprint Champion, Tarryn King as well as her husband Tom King, who is yet to be beaten in a wave event in Cape Town waters. Durban is sure to send down their best to join Jethro Johnson from East London. Others to watch will be twins, Tammy & Penny as well as Khara Doyle, Matt Maxwell and Hence Scholtz. On the foil side, will the sensational Nathan van Vuuren be in town to state his claim or will Tom King walk away with the title? On the social paddling front, the Wahines will once again be out in full force!
