Durban, 28 June 2012
Conditions are looking balmy for this Saturday’s Red Bull Nightshift with Jordy Smith at North Beach Durban.
The East Coast’s warm winter has its advantages with a host of SA’s best, both young and more experienced surfers, in the line-up. Young guns Chad Du Toit, Shaun Joubert, Slade Prestwich and Michael February round up Saturday’s line-up to bring an exciting outlook on the event.
Durban local Chad du Toit has got some tricks up his sleeve for the event: “I’ve been working on some new grabs and rotations. I’m aiming to stick a Kerrupt or two. I’ll leave the backhand superman to Jordy.”
More technical, powerful aerial surfing is exactly where the sport is headed and what new generation surfers are aiming for.
Red Bull Nightshift is set to rock North Beach with Shadowclub and City Bowl Mizers there to entertain the crowd after the surfers are done with their impressive aerial antics in the water.
The line-up now has a firm local flavour, as a few changes have been made in lieu of sponsor commitments and injuries. The confirmed line-up is as follows:
