- 19 September 2009 | Bodyboarding
The 2009 Knights Beach Pro has been put on hold until 7am on Sunday, due to small and junky onshore waves, but anticipation is high with the promise of some amazing conditions.
Conditions were not contestable as an early onshore wind caused the small 1-2ft waves to deteriorate.
South Australian brothers and local boys Eli and Dylan Beach were relieved that the competition was held off until tomorrow.
"Tomorrow is looking like one of the best days in a while at Knights, so we're wrapped that the contest will be held in awesome conditions,” remarked Eli.
As the penultimate event on the 2009 Rebel Sports Pro Tour, the Knights Beach Pro is and has traditionally been a key event for any riders hoping to win the Australasian title.
With an honour roll that reads like a who’s who of international bodyboarding, the best of the best will be on show this weekend as the likes of Mitch Rawlins (WA) Michael Novy (Qld) Jake Stone (Qld) Jones Russell and Dallas Singer (NSW) get set for a show-stopping shootout.
The action kicks off on Sunday, 20 September 2009 at 7am, with the event to be streamed live.
The Knights Beach Pro 2009 is supported by The Government of South Australia, South Australian Tourism Commission, The Office of Recreation and Sport - Be Active, Coopers Brewery, Swellnet, Surfing South Australia and the International Bodyboarding Association Australasia.
