A handful of the world’s best Bodyboarder’s have been alerted and will be ready to compete in the two-day event that will take place at Shark Island in Cronulla, Sydney Australia.
Andrew Lester (Defending champ), Mike Stewart (Hawaii), Ben Player (NSW), Tanner McDaniel (Hawaii), Mitch Rawlins (QLD), Dave Winchester (NSW), Lewy Finnegan (W.A), Damian King (NSW), Shaun Pyne (Cronulla) and many more of Australia’s best athletes will take battle in the world’s heaviest and most dangerous Bodyboarding wave – Shark Island.
This predicted swell is shaping up to rival the 2001 Shark Island Challenge – the most historic and craziest Shark Island to date, which had a similar swell size and direction.
