Jordy Smith will be the Ambassador of the 2009 O’Neill Cold Water Classic in South Africa 

It started in a remote corner at edge of the world where the Southern Ocean pounds the isolated Tasmanian shoreline. The O’Neill Cold Water Classic Series then moved up to the northern town of Thurso in Scotland for its perfect but freezing reef breaks.

The southernmost and northernmost events in professional surfing brought together exploration and competition within the depths of nature.

And now come the wilds. Cape Town with its selection of treacherous waves around the Cape Peninsula under the towering cliffs of the Table Mountain Range, is home to the third stop on the O’Neill Cold Water Classic Series.


Jose Rommel Souza

It is with great sadness that we are hearing that one of our members, Jose Rommel Souza may have been on Air France Flight 447.

Rommel was a brilliant surfer, much loved and active member of the club.

He joined several years ago, and straightaway made a huge impact, amongst other things joining a core group of big wave surfers within the club.

He would regularly chase waves all over Europe and the World at a moments notice.

Our heartfelt thoughts, and deepest sympathies go out to his family and the ones he loved at this difficult time.


Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer - The last surfing game, published in 2002. Sign petition to get new surfing videogames has launched a global petition in order to demand the development of new surfing games for Playstation, Xbox, Wii and PCs.

The petition is available for signing.The last console surfing game ever to see the shelves was “Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer”. It was published in the old 16th September 2002.

Seven years after, there are still no waves from the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii or PC line-up.What happened? Aren’t there any buyers? Is everyone a “Shoot’Em Up” addicted diehard player?

There is an unexplored market for electronic surfing games and it is definitely easier to simulate water and waves with the 3rd generation console programming. Look at the skating franchises! There are thousands of Tony Hawk’s episodes and other independent titles.
