Bob Works Big Wave event

Four metre waves and light offshore winds predicted for May Day

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 April, 2012 : - - It could be Mayday and Mayhem tomorrow as Surfing Taranaki’s Bog Works Big Wave Invitational 2012 is all go for Tuesday, May 1, in predicted 4 metre waves and light offshore winds. With a $5000 prize purse, the big wave surfing event will be held at the legendary big wave break, Bog Works, on New Plymouth’s foreshore with a 10am start. The best viewing for spectators will be from along Woolcombe Tce (just east of Placemakers) or from the acclaimed Coastal Walkway below.

The line up of big wave contenders includes Paige Hareb, currently in between ASP World Tour events, as well as Daniel Keropa and a host of Taranaki and New Zealand big wave riders. The Big Wave Invitational will run along the lines of other big wave competitions around the world, says Craig Williamson, Executive Officer of Surfing Taranaki.

“One of the most famous and long standing big wave competitions is Hawaii´s annual Eddie Aikau Memorial Competition,” says Craig.

"We have taken some inspiration from this event and hope to create our own little bit of magic right here in Taranaki for New Zealanders to take part in and enjoy. Taranaki often enjoys sizeable ground swells from the Southern Ocean from Autumn through till Spring enabling Bog Works to come into its own as a big wave break not for the faint-hearted.¨

The prize packages is broken down into $2,000 for the winner, $1,000 for the runner up, $500 for third, $250 for the, fifth and sixth place getters, along with awards of $250 each for the Biggest Wave, Most Critical take-off and Best Tube Ride of the day. All competitors below are confirmed but still need to register with the Beach Marshall before 9am and be present for a competitors 9:15am meeting, with the view to get underway by 10am.
