THE best surfers in KZN showcased their skills at Tweni beach at the inaugural Tweni 2’s surfing competition and four-kilometre fun run on Saturday.

A total of 10 pairs of surfers, including former double gold winner in the Surfing World Masters, Heather Clarke competed in the competition standing a chance to win a portion of the R12 000 cash prize.

The Super Oreo Brothers of Nicholas Njapha and Byran Wigmore narrowly took the honours and a payout of R10 000 while the runners-up team of The Bowl Raiders, Calvin Moore and Andrew Banks, took the second prize of R2 000.

The fun run had 20 participants with local runner Jabulani Majombozi as the overall winner of R1 000 cash prize setting the pace.

Danielle Hersch-Castos, who decided to join in at the last minute after being convinced by her friends to enter, led the women in the run.

Jonose Londile of South Coast Striders was the first male junior in, and the first female junior was Megan Adams.

The day’s event finished with a presentation evening featuring performances from local rock legend Ian Jones and the three-band Four 5 Seconds attended by over 200 people.

The event organising committee would like to thank the many sponsors who gave generously towards the event which raised over R20 000 for Ugu Surf riders to enable their members to travel to the national championships in East London in September.
