The Durban Surf Carnival presented by Jeep Apparel is coming up at the start of June and will once again take place at the New Pier on Durban’s Golden Mile from the 7th to 9th June 2013. This popular multi-disciplined surfing event in its 11th year will see South Africa’s top watermen battling it out for the various titles on offer.
You can expect to see World-class wave riding in the Longboarding, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and Retro Surfing divisions. The event will also host a Traditional Longboard Expression Session, which will showcase the golden days of surfing (ie with a Longboard) and this will be an awesome opportunity to see how far surfing has come over the years. The event includes the KZN Longboard Open Championships, which allows contestants who are not representatives/members of respective provinces in the country to surf in this KZNLSA sanctioned event in the respective surfing divisions contested.
“Jeep Apparel SA has been a proud sponsor of this event for 11 years and has watched it grow enormously over the years and are very happy to be on board again. We wish all of our contestants and spectators to the event a great contest. Let’s hope that we have some awesome surfing conditions. I also want to thank all other participating sponsors for their commitment to this event, without them this event could not take place”,
-says Steve Uppink, Managing Director Jeep Apparel SA.
