It is nearly Christmas, and time for the annual LIZZARD HURRICANE KZN SURFING CHAMPS 2018. This event is heralded as one of the most ‘fun’ family contests of the year. We see Moms and Dads, Grannies and Grandpas all surfing with their children. Anton Knoetze and his son Ben from Empangeni cannot wait for this fun contest!

The annual LIZZARD HURRICANE KZN SURFING CHAMPS 2018, hosted by Wave Wizards Surf Club, will be taking place at the prestigious Bronze Beach, Umhlanga Rocks on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of December 2018.

All KZN districts including Ugu, Ethekweni, Illembe and King Cetshwayo which is based in Zululand are invited. Surfers will be representing their districts and will be awarded points towards the overall DISTRICT TROPHY. The competition is sanctioned by KZN Surfing Association.


Wave Wizards Chairman Jestyn Viljoen ‘As always we are really excited to be hosting all the top surfers of our province. The beauty of this contest is seeing all the families join together for a healthy outdoors weekend enjoying the sun and ocean.'

King Cetswayo Surfriders will be represented by father and son Anton and Ben Knoetze who are already entered and super keen on the event. Anton is the current KCS chair and has been since 2002. He has won the Zululand Fever Open title as well as the Masters event and has also represented KZN in Master nationally and King Cetswayo (Zululand) in the Open and Masters Divsions since 2010. Ben took part in last years KZN champs so this will be the youngsters second regional event. In his short time doing competitions he has already won the Community Surf and Skate classic at Alkantstrand in the U/12 Division (2017) and has represented King Cetswayo at the 2018 Grommet Game in Port Elizabeth, winning the Sportsmanship Award. He also plays a mean piano.
