A solid crew turned up on the day, and were absolutely psyched to surf one foot slop. If you don't know already - it's the funnest surf comps you'll attend - wacky outfits, surfing Mullet boards, ripping spinners and floaters, a few thirst quenchers then shaking hips to the DJ on the beach. And of course, the after-party.
Not that it's needed, but we do all this for a reason. Mental Health. The day sets out to get people to speak up and to let them know they’re not alone and reduce the stigma - it's something OneWave have been doing a long time, so we are here to support it with all funds going to Waves of Wellness mental wellness surf program.
Stoked to say $5,000 was raised on the day.
Surfing-wise, competition was strong all day with big names such as Casey Egan, Damien Wills and Joshua Ku battling it out.
In the end, Danny Dal Sutton took it out in a well-deserved final. Not only was he repping a mad mullet, but also the new Fish Finger model. Josh Johnson Baxter (last years winner) came in second, followed by Jan Juc’s Tim Stevenson and Banjo Harfield from 13th Beach.
Thanks to 13th Beach Boardriders , Onewave, all the sponsors and everyone for turning up and having a good time. Good job Vicco!
