Cooking Waves For Roxy Girls In Mozambique

There was only a few hour’s worth of daylight left, but the girls in Mozambique for the Roxy Invitational were greeted with classic surf on their arrival. There was no chance that the contest was going to run, so the girls all rushed out to catch some of the sublime Mozambican perfection.

Heather Clarke, the surfer with the most experience on this trip, quickly stepped up to the plate and ripped a few waves all the way along the ridiculously long
sand-bank, showing her motivation to win this event. Not to be outdone, young Sarah Baum from Durban also showed that she is determined to do well as she picked off some great waves and rode them superbly on her backhand.

Hot young surfer Chantelle Rautenbach from Melkbosstrand was amping after her first session in Mozambique. “The waves were so good. It was super glassy and perfect and the waves were running like two hundred metres along the bank. The girls were just pulling out of some of the waves because they were so long,” said Rautenbach. “Heather (Clarke) was doing some massive turns, Sarah (Maritz) was getting some bombs and Stacy (Guy) was charging as well. As for me, I really want to do well in this event and am amped. It’s been such a cool event so far.”

As the sun set, expectations were high that the waves were going to be as good or better in the morning, but it was not to be. Today (Tuesday 29)
dawned with an onshore wind and small, unpleasant conditions. Quiksilver and Roxy Marketing Manager Dane Patterson, on-site in Mozambique, gave the program for the next few days.

“It looks like this onshore cycle is here for the day, so I guess we’ll be waiting it out,” said Dane this morning. “But then it looks really good for tomorrow (Wednesday 30) and maybe Thursday. The wind is going to turn favourable, there is going to be some swell around, and as we’ve all seen, the sandbar here at this spot is incredible. So we’ll be making the next call tomorrow morning.

This unique event, the first of its kind, offers R10K for first place, R3k for second, and R2k for third. It is by invitation only, and ten of the best female surfers in the country, as well as two alternates, have been invited. The contest venue is a long and perfect sand bottom point-break in southern Mozambique, and there will be jet ski assistance for the girls in their heats.

While the event is a collaboration between Roxy and Saltwater GIRL Magazine, with Saltwater GIRL Magazine being the presenting sponsor, their partnership is supported by Virgin Mobile and Resolution Health. The event is also going to be broadcast on an upcoming episode of Boardriders TV.
