The ‘Run What You Brung’ expression session open to on the day beach entry is a chance to showcase a diverse range of fins free wavesliding vehicles – the only limit on what you can ride is in the parameters of your skill and imagination – in 2014 the toilet seat poo-po was a big hitter.

Celebrating those at the heart of the scene, The Shapers Shield, presented in previous years to Handout Handplanes, G-Mat Surf Mats and Empire Surfboards, will be awarded for design excellence and innovation. Shapers and makers from across the waveriding spectrum – from backyard builders to established names ­– are invited showcase their alternative surf craft.  If you have a finless wave-slider you would like to show, get in touch E: about bringing it along.
