Whomp Off is on again!
Whomp Off is on again. It's Australia's - maybe even the world's, I'd have to check that - biggest bodysurfing contest.
This year Whomp Off will be held at Maroubra Beach on Saturday the 5th October.
As usual, the format will see 14 teams of 4 bodysurfers, judged across 4 separate events. They are:
- Individual heats

The comp will run from 6:30am till 2pm with everyone welcome, highly encouraged in fact, to come down and cheer on the squads.
