The Boardmasters surf comps are reaching the sharp end. The Men’s Open presented by Carve, yes, that’s us, finished the quarter finals early this morning so the stage is set for an epic show down on Sunday between local heroes Harry DR, Jayce Robinson, Oli Adams and Luke Dillon versus the international brigade of Hodei Collazo, Edouard Delpero, Angelo Bonomelli and Will Davey (British but lives in Lanza so half n half).
The groms and teens are finishing up today and the WSL longboard events go tomorrow. Sunday’s looking like the swell is pulsing for the afternoon so it should finish with a bang. Aside from the surfing the music kicks off at Watergate right about now. So gird your loins. Put on your drinking trousers and get involved…
Here’s a gallery of shots mainly from this morning (apart from the Hodei and Emily shots, they from yesterday).
