Striped Horse Challenge Winner Announced This Saturday

This Saturday evening, one Saffa big wave charger will be wearing a larger-than-usual grin. That’s because the winner of the Striped Horse Challenge will be announced, and they’ll be awarded R20 000 in cash courtesy of Striped Horse Craft Beer, return flights to Hawaii from RVCA, as well as two Twig Surfboards and accessories from Hurricane to ensure they’re equipped for their travels.

The Awards Evening is happening at Aces ’n Spades at 62 Hout Street, Cape Town from 7:00pm – 9:00pm this Saturday, 10 October, and the public are invited to attend. So, if you’re interested in finding out who among the 15 big wave surfers in contention will claim the ultimate prize, we’ll see you there. Striped Horse Craft Beer will flow, and so will the good vibes – plus there’s a chance you could win some of the sick prizes that will be given away on the evening.

The judging panel – led by 2013/14 Big Wave World Tour champion Twiggy Baker – are still in the process of deliberation, and it’s fair to say that whomever gets the nod as the inaugural Striped Horse Challenge champion, will do so by a fine margin. Some incredible entries were received and it is going to be difficult to separate the rides.

Here’s a look at some of the contenders for the Striped Horse Challenge title.
