SWOT Surf Club win 6th annual Billabong Interclub Championships

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 13 February, 2017 - The SWOT Surf Club A team has won the 2017 Billabong SA Interclub Surfing Championships beating 2016 runners up CYOH Surf Club by a mere 4,4 points in tough conditions at the Seal Point beach break in Cape St Francis.

The Muizenberg based Club, whose full name is “Surfers With Original Talent”, travelled to the national Interclub Championships with an A and B side determined to improve on their semi final result last year.

Determination, team spirit, good organization and hands on coaching paid off and the SWOT Club returns home knowing that the 2018 National Interclub Championships will be hosted at a venue of their choice. Led by Danielle Johnson, the winning team included her brother Craig, Brandon Benjamin, Papi Makanyane and Dillon Fernandez and was coached by Mark Powiss. The SWOT B Team also did well to finish 10th overall.

This was the third year in a row that Port Elizabeth based CYOH Surf Club has finished as runners. The JBay Boardriders Surf Club of Jeffreys Bay were third and the defending champions, Seal Point Boardriders, were fourth.

Durban based Sisonke Surf Club A team put together a massive performance to reach the semi finals and had to settle for joint fifth place with newcomers Tripout Surf Club of Buffels Bay but Sisonke improved on their seventh place result in 2016.

A record twenty four teams representing twenty surf clubs from as far afield as Johannesburg participated in this annual club get together which has grown in numbers over the last six years.

The event was hosted for the second year in a row by two time champions, Seal Point Boardriders,.
