We had an action packed day 1 down at the Ballito Pro with both the mens trials and the ladies competition surfing to completion. In the trials we saw Brazilian domination with Roberto Santos taking the win from Flavio Nakajima, who both got wildcards into the main event. In the ladies it was Nikita Robb taking the win from Faye Zoetmulder in the final and walking home with a R10’000 payday. We also caught up with top junior surfer, Ntando Msibi and ladies competitor, Tarry Chudleigh. This insert was broadcast on the Expresso Show on SABC 3.
The bank at Ballito is great and we have seen some good waves leading into the Mr Price Pro. Check out the trials with Shane Sykes getting 2nd and Brandon Jackson winning, both getting wild cards into the main event. I chat to Beyrick de Vries and Nic von Rupp. Check back every day for a short highlights video and all the latest news and action from the event.
