The University of the North Shore hath spoken and decided upon its 2018 graduates. The University of the North Shore is different though because unlike most universities that release a couple thousand graduates into the working world, UNS (University of the North Shore) only allows 10 people to graduate to its elite ranks. Yes, that’s 10 graduates from one thousand three hundred and sixty-four students on the qualifying series. Those are some damn slim odds (Find out who qualified here).
And yet some people, like Kanoa Igarashi are able to re-qualify through the QS multiple years in a row, while guys like Willian Cardoso surfed the QS for 10 years before graduating to the elite ranks. Imagine surfing the QS for 10 years, and missing graduation by one spot twice! That’s enough to drive someone completely batty! Most mense would’ve thrown in the towel and started a surf school on Muizenberg Beach years ago.
