uThungulu Surfriding surfers had the privilege of being introduced to a surfing judging course.
The mix of new Junior riders, masters and parents received valuable insight into what judges look for when scoring waves, how to judge surfing events and contest surfing in general. The course, which comprised of a lesson with notes, video examples and question and answer session was skillfully presented by Tasha Mentasti, multiple surfing champion, SA team member, qualified WSL judge and commentator.
The association thanks Tasha for her time and for the knowledge and experience passed on which is sure to give those surfers who attended an edge in their heats.
