It has been a winter for the record books in sunny South Africa, and its time to cash in.
The Monster Combo is an online campaign celebrating progressive, high-performance surfing.
For the first time in 2020, the Monster Combo introduces the Local Heroes division to celebrate and reward high-quality progressive surfing from the average Joe’s and Josephine’s in the general public.
Up for grabs each month is a brand new Billabong wetsuit, a custom-built Channel Islands surfboard and a case of Monster Energy. So if you’re sitting on a clip, send it in and win.
Entries must show a single ride with variation, with at least two completed manoeuvres to qualify. Wave size, length of ride, flow between manoeuvres and technical difficulty will all be assessed by the judges.
Each month, the judging panel will choose a monthly winner and a local hero. The winning monthly entries will be considered for the grand prize.
The prizes are off the charts. There is R 20 000 in cash for the winner plus a free spot on an international Zigzag and Monster editorial surf trip, Channel Islands surfboards, Pollywog hampers, plenty cases of Monster Energy and even more prizes still to be announced.
The event runs over 3 months, with 3 x monthly winners and the overall Champion crowned in December.
