NIGHT SKYSCAPE: The quintessential surf trip captured by a time lapse. Photo Sacha Specker


We’re looking for the photos that best capture the unique experience of surfing in Africa. The road trips, the freedom, the friendships, the nature, the adventure and the waves.

The photo could be from a recent trip, or you could raid the archive and dig up African surf gold from the past. A photo of that J-bay road trip in 1975, Namibia in 2003 or Morocco in 2017. Have a look at our Instagram feed @mamiwatasurf to get a flavor for what we are looking for. The criteria for the shots is that they show the essence of surf adventure anywhere in Africa.

The overall winner of the competition will win a Mami Wata X Hugh Thompson board worth up to R10,000 as well as a photo workshop with one of the world renowned judges. There are also lots of hampers of Mami Wata gear and Striped Horse beer to be won!

To enter you simply need to post the picture to Instagram or Facebook with #surfafrica + tag @mamiwatasurf @WavescapeSA. Don’t forget to geotag the image. There are three rounds and thus three chances to win. Each round will be judged by one of Africa’s finest surf photographers – Alan van Gysen, Greg Ewing or Sacha Specker. Three winners from each round will win a R2,000 hamper of Mami Wata gear and be entered into the final round.

The photos from the nine finalists from the three rounds will be shown at the Wavescape festival in December where the audience will have a chance to vote on the final winner. There’s also a bonus prize for the photo that received the most likes on Instagram or Facebook. The winner will get the Mami Wata X Hugh Thompson board + a photo workshop with their choice of the judges (in either Durban or Cape Town).
