Knights Beach Pro: fast, blurry and furious

Arguably the most notorious stop on the Australasian Rebel Sport Pro Bodyboarding Tour, the Heatworks Pro Presented by HB is returning to the infamous Knights Wedge in Port Elliot, September 11th and 12th.

Stop four of the pro bodyboarding tour will see a field of sixty professional bodyboarders from across Australasia and South Africa travel to the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.

The event is celebrating its fifth birthday and boasts a huge four star rating and a $5,000 cash pool.

The Knights Beach wedge is one of the most iconic bodyboarding waves in the world. Waves surge from deep water hitting a shallow rocky sand bar, the water then rebounds off an adjacent rock wall which forms a very heavy wedging wave, bodyboarders then throw their bodies on the line for the ultimate barrel.

The Heatworks Pro has always been a pivotal event on the Aussie Tour, with many winners of the event going on to become the Australasian Pro champion.

Surfing South Australia’s Events Manager Tim Doman is wrapped to be bringing the event back to South Australia for the fifth year in a row.

“The event has really become a staple part of the Aussie Tour and we love having all the interstate guys over to surf our wave, it really helps to inspire our up and coming riders” said Tim.

The event gives the perfect opportunity for South Australian aspiring bodyboarders to mix it with their favorite bodyboarding idols.

“Each year we have drawn some of the worlds best bodyboarders to the event including Dave Winchester, Mitch Rawlins and Jake Stone.

“I think the quality of the field is testament to the event but also the great wave that we have here in our backyard”, said Tim.

With just a two day waiting period to run the event, surfers must compete in whatever the ocean dishes up, however for four years straight the event has been held in near perfect Knights conditions, so contest organisers are hoping for five times lucky.

Bahia Bodyboarding Show: back tricks will be performed

Brazil will be hosting its second competition of the year from September 21 to 25. The Bahia Bodyboarding Show will be one of the last chances for riders to fight for precious points on the world tour and increase their situation on the ranking.

The competition will give 1000 IBA points and a total purse of $35.000 being $20.000 for the men and $15.000 for the women.

The City of Salvador will become Brazil's bodyboarding capital for the second time. One last year's edition Guilherme Tâmega from Brazil and Eunate Aguirre from Spain where crowned champions.

This year the competition will end on Saturday the 25th because a huge party is being scheduled to celebrate the 2010 Bahia Champions.

All international riders can pay their entries on the Check In that will happen on September 20th.

“Bahia Bodyboarding Show 2010", will happen at Psiu Beach, next to the Aeroclube Shopping Mall, only 15km from the airport and 2 km from the bus station.
