Nicole Naude from Redhill in Durban North has officially won the title of Miss Zag, SA’s Sexiest Beach Babe.
The 20 year old Durbanite was crowned Miss Zag by Zigzag Surfing Magazine after a six-month online contest where entrants from across South Africa were invited to build up their own online portfolio on www.misszag.co.za. The public got to ‘vote’ for their favourites through facebook. A panel of judges from Boss Models and Zigzag then selected one winner, based on their portfolio of images, activity and public support.
“I feel really overwhelmed!” said Nicole on being told she had won. “SA’s sexiest beach babe, wow! It’s an amazing honour to be named Miss Zag.”
“We were blown away by the participation and entries we received for Miss Zag” said Will Bendix, editor of Zigzag. “It was by no means an easy choice for the judges in the end, but Nicole is a deserved winner and an amazing ambassador for our brand.”
Along with the coveted title, Nicole will appear on a reversible cover of the upcoming issue of Zigzag and a full swimwear shoot on www.zigzag.co.za. She also wins an all expenses paid holiday for two to Mozambique, a quiver of surfboards from legendary shaper Spider Murphy, and a wardrobe of clothes and swimwear from leading surf brands. Last but not least, the title secures Nicole a two year modelling contract with Boss Models and an all expenses paid trip to Europe or New York to shoot her portfolio.
