Tand Invitational: scared to death

The Tand Invitational 2014 will be ridden between 29th June and 20th July, in the best possible wave conditions, in Cape Town, South Africa.

The fourth edition of the Tand Invitational will attract incredibly talented riders to one of the heaviest reef breaks in African waters.

The David Lilienfeld Trials, in memory of a late waterman, opens up the prestigious event to anyone wanting to have the opportunity to compete for the overall title.

All the finalists are guaranteed a spot in the Tand Invitational, where they will compete against 12 more carefully selected contestants. The David Lilienfeld Trials 2014 will run on the 28th June.

There are 16 places available for competitors in the main event. These spots will be taken by the four trialists, four of the best locals, the previous years' Tand Invitational finalists, with last four being decided on a wildcard basis.

Mark McCarthy, Sacha Specker, Iain Campbell, and Tristan Roberts are already locked in.
