poster2016_a4We’re stoked to announce that the 3rd Annual Slyder Cup presented by Reef is on! November has been a tricky month and we’ve been monitoring conditions during the official ‘Holden Period’. And as this month draws to a close, a chink of light has been spied and we’re calling a green light for Sunday 27th November at the gladiatorial amphitheatre that is Lusty Glaze, Cornwall.

This 3rd Annual Friction Affliction Convention is a coming together for the slyder-hood of bodysurfers, bellyboarders, paipo riders, mat surfers and those fins free stand up freaks the alaia riders – a one-day surf competition that celebrates the art of wavesliding from a ‘finless’ perspective with an emphasis on good vibes, good rides and good times!

The competition is broken into 4 classes: body surf / handplane; paipo / bellyboard; surf mat and alaia with a winner in each. The Grand Final will see the winners go head to head in a surf-off and the 3rd Slyder Cup Champion crowned. In this event it’s all about the style of your glide and your skill on your slyde…

Entry is open, places are extremely limited and available online on a first come, first serve basis HERE. Beach registration 10am Lusty Glaze. 

Part surf contest, part social gathering shapers from across the waveriding spectrum are invited to come along and showcase their wave riding craft – if you’d like to get involved, drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you: hello@approachinglines.com

Many thanks to our partners for providing the awesome prizes we have up for grabs including Reef goodies, Da Fins, a Slyde hand plane, a Mullet shred sled and a Dick Pearce bellyboard!
