CLUTCH! presented by MONSTER IS COMING IN FAST AND FURIOUS!

Lift the handbrake from 15 April 2023 – 15 July 2023!

Presented by Zigzag and Monster Energy, CLUTCH! is an online campaign celebrating progressive, high-performance surfing.

Criteria is open gates, whatever makes the audience stand up and salute! It could be an air, barrel, a monster combo, one mind bending turn, or an entire wave perfectly surfed, start to finish! Your fists pumping the air will tell us if you’ve delivered that CLUTCH! moment.

It’s been a year of cranking surf, so we know you’re all sitting on dynamite clips. Time to cash in.

CLUTCH! presented by Monster comes with a HUGE prize pool!

And to reward the Local Heroes, there’s a whole division to celebrate and reward high quality progressive surfing from the general public.

So if you’re sitting on a clip, send it in and win! And if you don’t have anything yet then get stacking!

There are also mad prizes to reward the videographers, both for the Round Winners and the Local Hero divisions.

 

 THE JUDGES ARE REVVING TO GO!!

Entries must show a single ride. The criteria is simple, the most mind blowing surfing on quality waves is what we’re after. Whether it’s a massive punt, a heavy tube or six turns on a J-Bay wall, every wave is a valid entry just make sure you give it horns and deliver a pinnacle moment.

Each round, our judging panel will choose a ROUND WINNER and a LOCAL HERO. The ROUND WINNER of each round of entries will be considered for the GRAND PRIZE!

Surfers must email their entries in video format via WeTransfer to online@zigzag.co.za for us to upload to the website. Entries will be posted during the round they are received. Any queries please contact online@zigzag.co.za
