It’s time once again for local surf comp the DP Battle Royale.
40 hand-picked surfers will hit the water in the Northern Illawarra on October 15, vying for a share of the $8000 prize pool.
The Surfers from Cronulla through to the South Coast have been invited to take part in the competition, which this year includes a straight women’s final and a straight junior final.
This year’s event includes local surfers Billie Melinz, Joel Wood and Luke Wrice.
The action gets underway at 7.30am when the competitors and supporters meet at Thirroul beach. They’ll be told where the best waves are on the day and will head to the water for a long day of surfing.
The presentation ceremony will then be held at Beaches in Thirroul from 6pm, where the winners will be announced.
Organiser Dylan Perese of DP Surfboards says crowds are constant all day, because the surfing action is so good. “And we’ve made things a bit more competitive this year,” he says. “Each surfer is sponsored by a local business, so there is also a local rivalry that should be lots of fun.”
“Throughout the day we also have games and prizes on the beach, as well as live music, so the event is fun for everyone.”
