The Monster Combo is an online campaign celebrating progressive, high-performance surfing. We’re looking for rides that link up a succession of moves in quality surf.

It has been a winter for the record books in sunny South Africa, and we know you’re all sitting on dynamite clips. Time to cash in!

For the first time in 2020, the Monster Combo introduces the Local Heroes division to celebrate and reward high-quality progressive surfing from the average Joe’s and Josephine’s in the general public.

Each month along with the best entry, we’ll be hooking up these local legends with a brand new Billabong wetsuit, a custom-built Channel Islands surfboard and a case of Monster Energy. So if you’re sitting on a clip, send it in and win!

Entries must show a single ride with variation, with at least two completed manoeuvres to qualify. Wave size, length of ride, flow between manoeuvres and technical difficulty will all be assessed by the judges. Each month, our judging panel will choose a monthly winner and a local hero. The winning monthly entries will be considered for the grand prize.

The prizes are off the charts. R20k in cash for the winner plus a free spot on an international Zigzag and Monster editorial surf trip, Channel Islands surfboards, Pollywog hampers, cold hard cash, plenty cases of Monster Energy and even more prizes still to be announced!

The event runs over 3 months, with 3 x monthly winners and the overall Champion crowned in December.
