Expect world class wave riding in the Longboarding, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and Retro Surfing divisions as well as during an unforgettable Traditional Longboard Expression Session that will showcase the golden days of surfing.
The Durban Surf Carnival includes the KZN Longboard Championships, the South African SUP Surfing Championships (Open men and Women’s divisions as well as the Juniors and legends division for over 45’s) and an all new Forgotten Soul Retro Surfing Division which will see surfers riding single-fin sub 7’0” surf boards.
Avid surf photographers can look forward to the SNAP Photographic Competition while beginners can expect to stand and surf before the weekend is over with the Mad Dog Surf School Free Learn to Surf clinic run by Shaun Sellman. Another new addition to this year’s event is the Club Zero fitness weekend. Club Zero will be running warm up and stretching sessions as well as some fun exercise programs on the beach.
