Mon, 20 March 2017

Here's a gallery of shots from the 25th Billabong South African Grommet Games underway at Pollock Beach in Nelson Mandela Bay until tomorrow. Grant  Scholtz was in the hood.



This unique surfing tournament is supported by Billabong, Sea Harvest, the Department of Sport and Recreation South Africa and the National Lotteries Commission.

The SA Grommet Games began as the Development Championships and was Introduced into South African surfing culture after unification in 1991 as part of Surfing’s commitment to transformation and development. The objective of the event in 1991 was to give young surfers from different backgrounds, communities and cultures the opportunity to participate in a an event that not only had a competitive element but also focused on fun and camaraderie.

Many South African surfers who began their competitive surfing careers at this event have gone on to compete at National and International level.
