“We were always a little bit worried about the direction of the swell,” said contest director Jason Ribbink. “Spike and I have been in constant communications over it, and there's not enough east element to the swell, and it's not going to reach contests standards.”

The Cell C Goodwave is a World Surf League (WSL) Specialty Event, with R100,000 for first prize. It is a unique competition on the South African surfing calendar in that it has a one-year waiting period and it costs only R1 to enter. The Cell C Goodwave has invited 32 surfers to compete in the tournament. The waiting period runs until 31 December 2017.

It is imperative to have a full day of good waves (or two half days) at the New Pier to run the event to completion.

The competition will be hosted by California Dreaming restaurant on the beachfront. Oakley and Sun International are both supporting sponsors.

When it runs, the tournament will have a live webcast. In addition, Cell C is also offering free Wi-Fi on the beach during the entire contest. Miss a 10-point ride, and watch the heat replays via the WSL app over the free Wi-Fi.

The Cell C Goodwave - in loving memory of Lee Wolins.
