South Africa’s premier, stand-alone women’s surfing event, The Roxy Wahine Cup, is taking place at the gorgeous Suncoast Beach near Durban this weekend (29 & 30 November).

The best female surfers in the country are all going to be attending and competing in the event where they’ll be battling it out for a share of the generous prize money. Even newbies, with no previous event surf experience, will have a chance of competing in the Novice Division, in which an amazing one-year Roxy sponsorship is up for grabs.

Along with the surfing action, the Roxy Wahine Cup also offers a weekend-long festival of live music and fun on the lawns of Suncoast Beach.

Last years’s winner, Heather Clark, who pocketed R10,000 for her victory, is expected to be back to defend her title.  She is bound to face tough competition from the likes of Tanika Hoffman, Tarryn Chudleigh, Nikita Robb, Kirsty Delport and Sarah Baum.

The Roxy Wahine Cup is a Surfing South Africa (SSA) event and forms part of the Pro Surf Tour.

The event is sponsored by Virgin Mobile and Resolution, and is supported by MXit, Supersport, Suncoast, Durban City, Clean & Clear, Nivea and Red Bull.
