Two days till Whomp Off
There's just two days till Whomp Off 2018!
Whomp Off Australia is a team-based bodysurfing event held annually around Australia. This year it will be held at Cronulla.
It was established in 2016 by Rikki Gilbey, the man behind WAW handplanes, and has grown exponentially each year with 2018 set to be the biggest and best yet.
The focus for Whomp Off is on overall team performance with various events throughout the day such as Tag Team, Tricks, Individual (teams pick their best whomper), and finally a 4 x 25 metre beach relay with fins on.
The scores from each event are tallied up and averaged out amongst the 14 teams to created a team average. At the end of the day, the team with the highest average score wins.
Though rego has closed, the public is very welcome to come along, the weather will be fantastic and it's worth noting they have a beer sponsor - Shark Island Brewing Company.
Where: Cronulla (they won't decide where on the beach till the day, so look for the tents)
When: Saturday 15th September
Time: 7:30 - 12:30
