NZ’s best longboards and Stand Up Paddlers put on an amazing spectacle of surfing over the weekend. It’s no wonder this is one of the Bay Of Plenty’s favourite sporting pastimes.
Weather conditions were poor on the Saturday and the sets were averaging around 0.5m. However, despite the mediocre conditions the surfers were unfazed and there was some brilliance on display in the water. There was a slight lift in swell for the Sunday, just in time for the finals which drew a solid turn out from the local community – taking the beach grand stand to near capacity!
Barrett Homes is looking forward to sponsoring this event again next year alongside Surfing New Zealand Inc!
Congratulations to all winners, participants and many thanks to those in the community who got involved. Check out some of the pics from this year’s event below [images provided by Col @ Surf2Surf.com].
