Jake Elkington will be eyeing out the win at the Boss of Moss Pro Junior.
The Boss of Moss takes place on 19 and 20 September at the Point in Mossel Bay, and as well as having a stack of cash and prizes up for grabs, the event also offers surfers with ambitions of blowing up in the upcoming SA Champs an opportunity to get their competitive eye in early. Plus it’s going to be a fun-filled weekend with so many activities – including an Expression Session under floodlights while live music plays at Delphinos.

COUNTDOWN TO THE BOSS OF MOSS SURFING CONTEST
Due to its high rating the event has attracted entries from the top juniors from all over the country to compete in Under 12 Boys, Under 14 Boys and Girls, Under 16 Boys and Girls and Under 20 Boys and Girls divisions. Over 90 kids have entered the event; there were over 60 entrants within 48 hours and we had to close entries within a week of going live.
The business owners and community of Mossel Bay have shown incredible support in getting the funds together to host this event. “I am blown away by the enthusiasm of the Mossel bay public and Municipality,” commented event organiser Llewellyn Whittaker.
Whittaker went on to say that the drive behind the event is to add more events to the Surfing South Africa calendar for the Juniors, as well as to promote and increase business for the locals. “We are trying to create a real festive vibe down at the Point over the weekend,” he said.
There is a total of R22 250 worth of cash and prizes up for grabs. These include a two-night stay at B@home guesthouse, a weekend stay at Point Village hotel, as well as the Wilderness Hotel. Mitat will also be sponsoring a night’s accommodation. “We are still deciding which prizes will go to which division,” said Whittaker.
Mossel Bay offers rippable waves at both Outer Pool and Inner Pool (pictured).
Ford Mossel Bay – one of the event sponsors – will be offering shuttle services into town, test drives of their vehicles, as well as a 4×4 excursion during the course of the weekend.
There is a competition running on the event Facebook page (The Boss of Moss), where you can stand a chance to win an ELS (Elton Lee Ireland) surfboard, a RVCA hamper, or a set of ear plugs from Surf Ears.
On Sunday the 20th there will be a modelling competition for 16 to 23 year-old women. The evening of the 19th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm there will be a Von Zipper night surfing Expression Session under the flood lights at the Point, during which time Wellcast will be playing at Delphinos.
“The Boss of Moss is going to be an annual event and we are looking at growing it bigger and better each year,” concluded Whittaker.
