Champions decided at the 2015 Tigers Milk Surf Classic

September 14th, 2015

The inaugural Tigers Milk Surf Classic was completed on a high note at Muizenberg Corner yesterday (Sunday, September 13th) and the large crowd who gathered to watch the unique multi-discipline event were treated to some top class performances in each of the divisions.
As the strong southeaster backed off conditions at Surfers Corner improved and the competitors posted some high scores. South African Men’s SUP Champion Justin Bing showed his class, scoring the only 10 point ride of the event while two time World Longboard Champion Matthew Moir came close with a couple of 9 point rides as he worked his way to the Final.
Others who impressed on the final day of competition were four time South African Surfing champion Nikita Robb, Jeffreys Bay sisters Emma and Gina Smith, talented young surfer Jordy Maree, Muizenberg locals Dillon Fernandez and Paul Sampson Chudleigh, longboarders Tristan Lev, Alfonso Peters, Kay Holt and Simone Robb and SUP exponents Chris Bertish, Tammy Robarts and Roxy Davis.
The inaugural event celebrated a number of firsts. These included a shark sighting which brought a premature close to the proceedings on Saturday, a dispute with local law enforcement officers who issued Tigers Milk with a fine for displaying advertising banners on the beach, the introduction of a Varsity Division into a surf contest and the running of a surf event from inside a restaurant.
