Final Results

 

2018 Tigers Milk Winter Classic Men’s and Women’s Longboard titles won by Steven Sawyer and Crystal Hulett.

In one of the best 25 minutes of contest surfing seen at Muizenberg in many years, Steven Sawyer of Jeffrey’s Bay produced two plus 9 point rides in the Final of the WSL Speciality Men’s Longboard division at the 2018 Tigers Milk Winter Classic yesterday (Sunday June 10th) to take the title and the R6000 prize purse. Two time Tigers Milk Champion Matthew Moir posted a 9.65 ride in the epic final, the highest score of the contest, but needed a strong back up ride to take his third title. When the siren sounded Moir had to settle for second ahead of Michael Hill, who also scored a plus 9 point ride in the final. Local longboarder, Nobel de Castro, a finalist last year, placed fourth.

Small waves and high scores on Day Two of the 2018 Tigers Milk Winter Classic at Muizenberg Corner.

Early morning marginal Muizenberg surf and mid-winter Western Cape rain did not stop contestants from posting some top class scores on Day Two of competition at the 2018 Tigers Milk Winter Classic.

The first contestant to show her international quality was 2017 South African Team member and professional surfer Tanika Hoffman who posted a 16.51 heat score in some of the smallest waves of the day.

Under 40 Division longboarder Chris Heath used every longboard trick in the book to score 16.38 points, the highest in this divison on the day while Dylan Swindale posted a 16, 15 heat score in his first round Under 23 Longboard heat. READ MORE…

2018 Tigers Milk Winter Classic gets off to a rainy start on World Oceans Day.

Typical two foot Muizenberg surf and a rainy morning greeted contestants as they competed in the early rounds of the 2018 Tigers Milk Winter Classic and celebrated World Oceans Day at Surfers Corner.

Despite the small waves there were some fine performances by a number of surfers in the first two rounds of the Men’s Surfing Division and in the first round of the Over 40 Longboard group.

2016 Tigers Milk Winter Classic Men’s Division winner Jordy Maree’s 16.38 points out of a possible 20 in the Men’s Surfing Quarter Final was the highest score of the day and the Kalk Bay local will now come up against Muizenberg local Craig Johnson, Joshe Faulkner of Jeffreys Bay and Daniel Farr of New Zealand in the first semi-final in this division.
