We used to have this event in South Africa and it was pretty dam cool. So stoked a South African took the win in the US version recently. Dylan Lightfoot made the semi finals at the Vans US Open and then took it a little further with his team mate, Fmx wildman, Bilko, to take the win at SurferCross.
Every year some of the best motocross and surf athletes gather together for Surfercross. This year marked the 15th consecutive year for Surfercross, with a heavy combination of Pro and Industry riders alike. In the pro class, each pro surfer was randomly paired with a pro mx rider, while the industry class was a random mix of desk jockeys. We took over the MX track at Milestone the first day, then hit the surf at Trail 6 in San Clemente the following day. Surfercross is just about the perfect amount of dirt and surf. This event brings together some of the most talented athletes across two industries, into one very unique contest.
This weekend the best mx racing in SA comes to Cape Town, with the MX Nationals happening at Zone 7.

In the build up to this weekend’s, Supercross Africa, at Loftus, I got to go hang with Darryn Durham and Caleb Tennant, in the Atlantis Dunes on Sunday. We had 4×4’s, bikes, cold beers, boerie rolls and an insane view of Cape Town and Table Mountain. The boys were killing it and I may have gotten too close for a couple of shots. So sit back and enjoy the action, while getting your froth on for Supercross on Saturday!
