The Pelican Single Fin Ladies Invitational held on 18 of November 2017, was a well organised contest with some fantastic sponsors. This event boasts being the first ‘lady sliders only’ event to be held in South Africa. 16 ladies from around the country, some from as far as Cape Town and all very varied in ages, came out to have a whole heap of fun and win some decent prizes too.


Adin Masencamp (Strand) delivered the best result of the seven South Africans in the world’s premier event for surfers aged 18-and-under when he finished ninth at the Jeep World Junior Championship which ended in wind affected one metre waves at Bombo Beach in Kiama, NSW, Australia on Wednesday.
