Congratulations DVZ, the official Round 3 winner of the Monster Combo. Davey’s efforts see him win a R2000 Pollywog gift voucher and an entry into the final with a chance to win R20 000 cash + his spot on an international surf trip with Matt Bromley and the Zag and Monster crews. Tatum Holder feeling the good vibes too, banking R2k cash for his efforts behind the lens.
Here’s how it went down in the eyes of the judges in Round 3:
Matt Bromley: WOW!!the entries are next level this Round 3!!! It’s a super tight call between Jordy Maree’s combo #99, Eli #79, and Davey #77… I’m voting for Davey van Zyl’s combo! DVZ takes Round 3. Local Hero – Captain Kai
Monster Energy: Sheez, this is a tough one. Eli’s was epic again. Both Davey’s, and Jordy Maree’s were nuts. It’s splitting hairs. In the end, we got to give it up to Davey Van Zyl for some smooth buttery surfing on that Combo. Captain Kai for the Local Hero!
Zigzag: What a Round. The best for last it would seem. Some serious combo’s coming in from the lads. Luke Thompson the man child gets involved, Jordy Maree and his forehand and backhand being put to good use. Some South Coast flavour on display from Gav but in the end, DVZ takes this round… by a fraction! Jordy Maree was nipping at his heels. Kai Linder takes the local hero award!
Davey and wave #77, for the last huge down rail carve. #92 with the kegging barrel and super technical grab rail down carve, with absolutely no loss of momentum, is also silly, but #77 is the winner just for the size and power of that final carve, on the back of the first one and the barrel.
In the next couple of days, voting will once again open to the public! This time around you’ll be voting for your overall winner. Who’s it gonna be?
