Barry Wolins from South African Surfing Legends has been hard at work at getting this event back on it’s feet, and is confident that it will be a resounding success. “I’m really proud of the fact that we managed to resurrect this contest,” said Wolins. “It’s the most exciting event on the domestic surfing calendar. With the South African Surfing Legends behind it we have a good team to run a world-class tournament. Big thanks to Cell© for coming on board and sponsoring the competition.”
Sponsored by Cell C, and sanctioned as a specialty event by the WSL, South African Surfing Legends presents The Goodwave,a surfing event that in 2017 will see thirty two of the best South African surfers challenging for a first prize of R100,000.00 in what is regarded as the ultimate surfing shoot-out to be held on the best day of waves that Durban has to offer.
