Tue, 18 April 2017

Anyone can enter the revised single fin Logjam event from 1-3 June at Surfers Corner in Muizenberg, but you need to get your social mojo on and scoop some votes.

LogjamIII-3June2017Organiser of Logjam III Jamie Nye of African Soul Surfer says that "online entries and voting has been pretty epic, sparked a lot of conversation, and of course ruffled some feathers! Love it."

This years event comprises two parts, the surfing component: Logjam surf contest and Mingle with Your Single expression session, while the second component comprises the beach festivities and of course the after party.

Some cool new changes mean that apart from a few definites, a bunch of Logjammers are selected as wild cards from votes on social media. There are no divisions. Ballies. Men. Women. Groms. Anyone can win. So five year old kids, or 80 year old grannys, give it your best shot!

If you got a single fin log, and can log with some style, then you can enter. Go to www.log-jam.co.za where you can enter and get the full lowdown of how to do so. You have 12 days so get cracking! Entries close 30 April.

To vote, you have to follow @african_soul_surfer on Facebook and / or Instagram, then add #gotmyvote in the comments below your favourite Wildcard Entries. These will be posted to FB and Insta once a person has entered on the website. The entrants can then ask their mates to tag their entry with #gotmyvote

Logjam III has a window period from 1 to 3 June, but only needs six hours of good Berg conditions, with Spike from Wavescape assisting in the call. Proper logging conditions are not 4-6' winding walls and a sea breaking far out with endless foam lines. Kiff logging conditions are 2ft maybe 3' and super clean and fun.

There is a R10k prize: Winner takes all. Entries are restricted to strictly singlefin Logs. They must be 9ft+ and contain no side plugs. Leashes are optional.

"The event is 100% crowdfunded. By us for us," says Jamie.

After the success of last year's Woodies sideshow, we've changed it up for this year to be Single Fins, and we're calling it "Come Mingle with your Single".

"Come down to the Corner with any single fin, long, short, fat, old, or new. All welcome. Have a lekker lineup on the wall, bit of show n tell, then paddle out for a mass expression session and free surf. Totally free, ALL welcome."

All participants will get a free lucky draw ticket to win a brand new Single Fin shaped by York Surfboards, which will be won at the After party.

"The fact we decided to not work with any sponsors this year is deliberate. We'd rather try something fun and different and crowdfund the whole event by having a kick ass Afterparty. Expect bands, skate ramps, giveaways and good vibes! Watch this space for more info."
