The Shark Island Challenge is coming. Trials will be hotly contested. For the first time in the events history the Human Shark Island Challenge will feature 14 of the elite IBA Top 16.

In the past the waiting period has been a deterrent for International competitors but 2008 will herald a new formula and a shorter waiting period. The waiting period has been trimmed down to just 20 days”, said IBA International General Manager Terry McKenna.

“This is less than half the time that the event has had in the past but we are confident that this time of the year will serve up some of the epic conditions that are required for what is considered to be the best competition on the planet”.
