The third of the Roxy Surf Jam events kicked off on Saturday 2nd September with some great weather, fun waves and hot surfing in Cape Town. The swell was in the three-foot range at Long Beach with strong offshore winds, and the girls were able to cut loose on the long left-handers.
Early stand-outs included Lisa Mace and Sarah Baum, who both managed to string together some tight turns to score the big points. Rosy Hodge and Tarryn Chudleigh were ripping in the U20 division, as was Caylin de Reuck.
Presented by Peugeot and Samsung, this is the third Surf Jam of the year, with the final event on the Roxy calendar being the Roxy Wahine Cup in Durban, the biggest stand-alone girls event in the country. The Roxy Surf Jams are extremely popular amongst the female surfers in South Africa, and are proving to be a great springboard to launch the Roxy girls onto the Pro Tour.
The Roxy Surf Jams are sanctioned by Surfing South Africa (SSA), the governing body for the sport in South Africa, while the U20 category is also accredited by ASP Africa.
