Eco-Warriors Get Stuck In for Tuffy Beach Clean-Up

For the past few years, Zigzag have teamed up with Tuffy to bring you our Beach Clean-Up competition – in which we reward eco-conscious readers with kiff prizes. This year Firewire and Share the Stoke have joined our partnership and will be giving away a brand new board to one lucky entrant each month for their good enviro deeds. And we’ve just stoked out our first monthly winner:

Mr paynter - winner
Bryan Paynter went the extra mile with his winning entry in August, submitting photos and a video time-lapse of his clean-up.

There are still five more boards up for grabs between now and the end of January, and to be in contention to win one is easy; all you’ve got to do is grab a Tuffy bag and fill it with litter you collect at your chosen beach, then send us some evidence along with some info to comps@zigzag.co.za about where, when and how. All entries will be published online here and will be considered for the monthly board giveaway.

It’s that easy, and we’ve seen a collection of epic entries come in during September. Here are a few of the contenders in line to win the second of six Firewire surfboards up for grabs:

Greg Warner - stillbaai
Greg Warner is looking forward to a ‘litter-free-beach’ future, and did his part by cleaning up his local in Stillbaai.


Kyle Hugo - Hout Bay
Competition or not, Hout Bay local of 26 years, Kyle Hugo, has made it a habit to pick up trash every time he walks his dogs, goes for a surf, or makes any kind of mission to the beach. He submitted this classic entry.


Aaron - Snakepark
Due to a lack of swell, Durban’s Aaron Middleton got to work cleaning up the beach around Snake Park. Nothing like a selfless selfie to get the judges frothing.


Jared - Sumbawa
Whilst on a recent surf trip to Sumbawa, Jared Hersch and friends found some time between getting slotted by cleaning up the Lakey Peak beach.


Luca Verbeeck - Plett
As part of his internship with the Environmental Unit at Eden District Municipality, Luca Verbeeck and his partners organised a coastal clean-up in the Crags near Plettenberg Bay.


Deon and Tanja - Albatros J-Bay
Deon Lategan and his wife Tanja are avid campaigners against environmental pollution, and got to work by cleaning up massive amounts of trash and fishing gut near Albatross in J-Bay.


Watch the Zag team take on Durban’s Umgeni river mouth after some heavy rainfall, which sent tons of trash beach bound.

With five more boards up for grabs, if you don’t win with your first entry then keep your beach tidy by trying again. And thanks in advance for helping us keep Mzansi’s coastline clean.
