The Surf Emporium Western Cape Inter School Surf League has been an incredible success. Schools from all around the Western Cape gathered every second Friday afternoon to share waves, make new friends, surf with old friends and experience the opportunity to represent their school in a tag team format event.
The aim of the League has been to introduce children to a sport where they can feel included, learn skills such as working together as a team, and improve their surfing. The focus is on participation and inclusion of all school children regardless of their surfing skill level, or ability...whether they are at the backline pulling airs or riding foamies in the front. We welcome everyone to participate and learn with teams attending as far afield as Ocean View High School, Masiphumalele and Capricorn Park.
In 2018 we saw 7 Junior Teams and 10 Senior Teams participating. The 2018 Junior Champions Reddam Constantia Prep and 2018 Senior Championships SACS battled out the season to take home the gold medals and prestigious trophies into their schools trophy cabinet.
This year the participation grew significantly with 18 Junior Teams and 10 Senior Teams competing over terms 2 and terms 3 of 2019 in the ten event series. With a special mention of significant growth in participation from the girls in both the Junior and Senior divisions. Including all boys teams, mixed teams and all girl teams competing on the same platform.
The final event held today, Friday 6th September 2019 was the 10th event in the series. With each teams total scores tabulated and their top 7 event results counting towards their overall result. Congratulations to every single team that participated.
