Hi Ladies, my name is Sarah and I’m the founder of NAMIKO, a local brand of sustainable ocean wear for women and I’m super excited to be collaborating with Single Fin Events to put on the first ever ladies only Singlefin event in South Africa! After constantly checking the forecast for this weekend we are super stoked to give the contest the GREEN light for Saturday the 18th of November!! 

The event will be held at Pelican Island in Richards Bay and is open to ladies of all ages and skill levels. The only requirement is that your board is 9ft minimum with a single fin setup and leashes are optional, stoke isn’t. 

UPDATE: We have a green light for Saturday 18 November

Pelican Island is a unique wave that breaks inside the harbour and on a good day can offer up rides of over 200m! We have a 2.5m @ 11 sec. SE swell with light variable NE winds and a spring low tide, the optimum conditions for Pelican to work its magic.

We have some awesome prizes up for grabs but we're keeping it under wraps until the day! One thing we just can't keep quiet about is the first place prize, the winner will receive a Customised Long Board courtesy of Clayton Surfboards and Surf Blanks SA.  This is an amazing prize! With all the great sponsors that have come on board, we can also confidently say that every entry will receive something awesome!

If you need info on accommodation options or info on Richards Bay in general, please get in touch with us and we’ll help you out as much as we can.

Please share with all your friends and let’s try get as many ladies together as possible and remember the contest is open to ALL ladysliders regardless of age or skill! Woohoo can’t wait to meet all you ladies.

Our mission with this event is to uplift and encourage the female longboarding community to come together to share in the stoke of Singlefin sliding!
