The First Annual Friction Affliction Spring Convention

The Slyder Cup, presented by Reef, is a different kind of surf event. Bringing together the alternative breed of surfers: bellyboarders, body surfers, paipo riders, handplaners, mat surfers, and alaia riders it is 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 1st Slyder Cup Champion crowned.

Watercraft will go though scrutineering to ensure no fins have slipped through the net. Any competitor that falls foul of the rigorous eye of the scrutineer may find their vehicle relegated to the ‘fin bin’. Showcasing the diversity and creativity that exists in surfing, alongside we’re hosting a ‘Run What You Brung’ expression session where anything goes. If you’ve ever fancied showcasing your waveriding prowess on a door, a tea tray, a sled, now’s your chance…

In this event it not about how hard you can shred the gnar, it’s about the style of your glide, your skill on your slyde and the laying of your lines…

Registration starts at 1 pm down at Lusty Glaze. There is a large pay and display car park at the beach. Festivities will carry on into evening with a special premiere screening of ‘Anything Sing’ in association with Reef, prize giving plus some epic tunes. Put the date in your diary – 13th April at Lusty Glaze.
