Robb Claims 2008 Lizzard Nando's Surf Pro Title
In the women’s final, Lizzard team riders Nikita Robb and Heather Clark (Port Shepstone) started strongly, posting some early bankable scores. Eventual winner Robb said “conditions were very difficult”. Having “scraped through all of [her] heats, Robb was “very surprised with the victory, which was a long time coming”. With 2 minutes left in the heat, all of the competitors were one score away from first place, and again the messy ocean conditions played into the hands of the surfer who posted decent scores early on. Ultimately, it was Robb who prevailed over Heather Clark, Tasha Mentasti (Durban) and Tammy Lee Smith (Salt Rock) to record her second consecutive Lizzard Nando’s Surf Pro victory.
The fourth day of competition had started with the women’s quarter finals, with familiar names like Heather Clark, Nikita Robb, Tash Mentasti (Durban) all qualifying for the semi finals.
The event, now in its sixth year, was held at Durban’s North Beach between 15-18 May, and offered a total of R121 500 ($15 000) prize money. The junior prize giving was held on the 16 May, with the men’s and ladies finals and prize giving being held on Sunday 18 May.
