DYLAN Lightfoot from Jeffreys Bay triumphed at the Boss of Moss surfing contest in Mossel Bay, beating fellow Jeffreys Bay contenders Sebastian Williams and Joshe Faulkner in the premier u.20 Boys division.

Williams took the initiative early on, taking to the air and pulling-off an incredibly high air 360. This sparked a fire in Lightfoot, which sent him into the air on the very next wave. Not to be outdone, goofy-footed Faulkner launched a backhand air to reverse, but was unable to hold on. Three waves ridden with back-to-back air 360’s, a fitting climax to what was a very successful event.

“It was a really cool event,” says Lightfoot. “It’s always nice coming to Mossel Bay. I seem to always get good results here and the waves are usually really fun!”

Nicole Pallet (KZN) took out the highly competive u.20 Girls division ahead of Ollie Brand and Sophie Bell. Tristan Lev – who has based himself in Cape St Francis this year – took out the u.16 Boys division ahead of some big names. Ever the dark horse, he once again showed why he will be a strong force in the future of South African surfing.

“The final day saw awesome waves with lights winds making for very contestable conditions,” says contest organiser Llewellyn Whittaker after the event. “The Boss of Moss in its first year was a huge success. Events like these are only achievable by a team effort, people who are passionate about what they do.”
