J-Bay Sandboarding Challenge

The roadtrip to Jeffreys Bay culminated in a great comp where the Big Air and Extreme Air events were closely contested by the top riders who pulled a variety of tricks, any one of which could have won one of the smaller comps. Vince an Australian snowboarder pro had pushed the envelope and won the Slalom ahead of Clayton and Lee now found local riders pulling out all stops in the Big Air. Simphiwe and Rhyan did amazing things to garner first and second place respectively with Lee and the rest of the pilots close on their heels. Clayton and Martin fought out the battle for first and second place in the Extreme Air, an event that saw few takers. The results are as follows :
