The Shaw and Partners North Bondi Surf Club Classic takes to North Bondi for the first time in over a decade as the Summer of Surf brings surf sports racing back to one of the world’s most popular beaches.
Racing commences from 3pm on Friday with the events pinnacle dubbed the ‘Finals Package,’ kicking off at 1pm on Saturday which will be live streamed globally here.
With leading financial services business Shaw and Partners donating $75,000 in prize money on the day ($350,000 for the series), the races have attracted athletes from across the country – many of whom are Olympians, world and national title holders.
“Boards and bodies will fly off the back of waves, skis will ricochet in the air and swimmers will punch it out around the cans – this is surf racing at its most exciting,” said Shaw and Partners Co-CEO and local resident, Earl Evans.
“It is such an exciting sport to watch – one where Australia dominates on the global stage and Shaw and Partners is privileged to be supporting these outstanding athletes,” he said.
Also featuring in the finals package is the LSKD Board Race, We Are Feel Good Inc Swim, Mr Strange Eyewear Ski Race and the Shaw and Partners Therabody mixed taplin relay.
Summer of Surf Event Manager Mackenzie Hynard is delighted for the world’s best surf sport starts to be doing battle at North Bondi.
“The talent we have in the Shaw and Partners Summer of Surf is mind blowing! Each and every event athletes continue to step up and give career best performances and North Bondi will be no different. With so much prize money on offer and on such an incredible stage I think the Shaw and Partners North Bondi Surf Classic will be some of the best surf sports racing we have ever seen!”
Event heat draws, live results and updated racing schedules can be viewed on Live Heats and the finals package will be live for worldwide viewing here. The Summer of Surf will also be running behind the scenes content on their Instagram page.
