Summer Bowls and Ice Cream at the Umhlanga Surf Fest

The year is winding down fast now, with just 28 days left before the calendar flips to 2014. Some are already on holiday (those lucky fish) while others will be soon enough.

Surfers entered into this weekend’s Umhlanga Lizzard / Nature’s Valley Surf Fest will be looking for one final competitive push before they too slide into festive mode. Spectators interested in a rad day of chilling at one of KZN’s nicest popular beaches and watching some sick surfing, they will be heading down to Umhlanga Main Beach this weekend (7 – 8 December) and throwing down their towel.

Dan Redman claimed last year’s Umhlanga Surf Fest title.

Organisers have worked hard to get a number of cool sponsors involved, so not only will the competitors have plenty to fight for (over R50 000 in prizes), but spectators will be treated to some ice cream and granola bars.

Sounds like fun.

Summer bowls and ice cream. Mikey February and JJ Harris are looking forward to shredding at this weekend’s Lizzard / Nature’s Valley Surf Fest in Umhlanga. The lovely Asha Irvine and Nats Rautenbach are going to make sure smiles are standard issue throughout the weekend.
