The event again attracted competitors from all over New Zealand including for the first time Ben Poulter (Raglan) and JC Susan (Mount).

For the first time in the series competitors were greeted with onshore conditions at Fitzroy beach, but still highly contestable 2-3 foot waves

The cold conditions didn't dull the mood around the comp site, with quality warm eats again provided by the Waitara Boardriders, and quest MC Keone Campbell throwing out some good sounds and commentary.
