2017 Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic takes centre stage at Muizenberg Corner from Friday to Sunday

The third edition of the Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic will get under way at Surfers Corner in Muizenberg this Friday (June 9th) and will conclude with the final rounds of Longboarding,Surfing and Stand Up Paddling on Sunday June 11th

Having firmly established its position as the only multi discipline surfriding event in South Africa, the Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic continues to build on the fact that it is entirely different to any other surf contest in the country.

For the second year in a row the event will not only present a World Surf League Longboard Speciality Event for Men and Women, making it the only WSL Longboard event to be held in South Africa and Africa.

In addition the event takes place in front of the Tiger’s Milk Bar and Restaurant at Muizenberg Corner, which is regarded as the birthplace of Surfing on the continent.

The Tigers Milk Classic not only includes a WSL longboard Division for Men and Women but also has separate divisions for Men and Women surfers and Men and Women Stand Up Paddlesurfers.

Muizenberg attracts longboarders of all ages and so this discipline is the major focus at this year’s three day contest. One of the most well supported groups is the Over 40 Longboard division and the new additions to the event, the Under 23 Men’s and Women’s, not far behind.

All contestants will receive a Tigers Milk voucher and a commemorative event hoodie while finalists in the nine divisions will share close to R50,000 in prize money and over R36,000 in prizes.

2016 Champion and Muizenberg local Alfonso Peters is top seed in the Men’s Longboard Division with 2015 Champion and two time me ISA World Champion Matthew Moir, seeded second. 2016 Tigers Milk champion and ISA Women’s World Champion Simone Robb of Kommetjie is top seed in this division and but will face tough competition from 2015 champion and seven time South African Surfing champion Kay Holt.

Challenges in the Men’s Longboard Division could come from locals Tao Farren Hefer, Nobel de Castro and Kwezi Qika and provincial representative Tristan Lev and Krystal Tavernor, Deborah Patterson, Therese Russel and Angela Craemer in

Gavin Moir, who represented South Africa in Brazil in 2000, leads the charge in the Over 40 group with SA Longboard Chairman Paul O’ Connell and SSA Board member Isaac February also in the mix.

In the Open Men’s surfing Division 2017 National Team member, SWOT Surf Club stalwart and ‘Berg local Brandon Benjamin will be hoping to celebrate his return from the ISA World Games in France with a win at his local break. His challenges will come from fellow SWOT Club members locals Dillon Fernandez and  Craig Johnson, top young Surfshack campaigner Paul Sampson Chudleigh and Donovan Wichmann.

SA Team members Tanika Hoffman and Faye Zoetmulder, Tarryn Chudleigh and multiple SA Champion Tasha Mentasti are the pick in the highly competitive women’s surfing division.

The Under 23 Longboard divisions are new additions the this event and feature a host of talented younger longboarders who be making their mark for the first time this year while the pick of the Men’s Sup division is Nathan Van Vuuren and the individual to watch in the Women’s Sup division is Chelsea Van Rooyen..

In addition to the generous prize money on offer finalists will also win prizes from Mami Wata, a support sponsor for the event. These prizes will include clothing, tshirts, caps and other items as well as the grand prize of a beautifully crafted longboarded shaped by Hugh Thompson.

The Heat Draw and daily schedule for the Tigers Milk Winter Classic is posted on www.surfingsouthafrica.co.za

Click view the heats and schedule. Results and photos will be posted on the www.surfingsouthafrica.co.za at the end of each day and there will be regular updates on the Surfing South Africa facebook, twitter and instagram platforms.

While the Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic will showcase the skills of many of South Africa’s top Longboarders, Surfers and Stand Up Paddlers it will also support a Surfing South Africa Outreach initiative. This initiative will be coordinated by SSA Development Officer Danielle Johnson and will take place at Surfers Corner from 10am to 1pm on Sunday June 11th. About 60 young surfers from a number of community based outreach programmes that use surfing to change the lives of marginalized youth will participate in a surf contest with the top four teams winning medals for their efforts.During the programme a Tag Team format will be used which will see groups of five boys and girls surfing together as teams. In this way organizers ensure that every participant plays a role in the project.

Although the Outreach programme is geared towards giving surfers from disadvantaged communities the opportunity to participate in a team focused surfing contest, the main objective of the initiative is enjoyment.

Each participant will receive a commemorative Tigers Milk T-shirt, as well as refreshments and meals which will be provided by Tiger’s Milk and their suppliers

The Tiger’s Milk Winter Classic is supported by Mami Wata in partnership with Wavescape.
