Two awesome events down on the southern tip of Africa and with both events being ‘roaming’ the judges could choose from a decadent array of beaches. This year the action centred on Big Bay (just north of the city of Cape Town) and the beaches of Witsand and Scarborough down the Cape Peninsula.
Ben Van Der Steen won the World champs; Phil Horrocks won the wave event. Here is the footage:
