Surf boat crews to take on Piha surf

30th January 2009

Three Red Beach surf boat crews will take on Auckland’s west coast surf this coming Saturday, 31st January, in the FreshUp Piha Classic Big Wave surf boat series.
The event doubles as Round 3 of the Trillian Trust Surf Boat Series and race organisers expect 30-40 crews to take part.
Competing for Red Beach will be two men’s crews – the Red Necks and the Icebreakers – as well as the Mavericks women’s crew.
The Piha organisers are expecting a surf of 1.5m – 2m when racing gets under way at 10.30 am.
