The Monster Combo is open for business between
1 JANUARY 2019 – 31 JUNE 2019!

Time to double up on sides, upsize those turns, and bury that rail to create the ultimate combination of surfing flavour!

The Monster Combo is an online campaign for all you Saffas that shred more than lettuce,
CELEBRATING AND REWARDING PROGRESSIVE, HIGH-PERFORMANCE AND INNOVATIVE SURFING.

One trick ponies ain’t gonna cut it, as this joint only deals in combos. To qualify and secure your spot in the final you have to piece together one big tasty ride garnished with at least
TWO SALTY MANOEUVRES AND DRENCHED IN SOME EXTRA HOT CHILLI SAUUUUUCE!!

The judges aren’t looking for some dry, overcooked cheese burger here. We want a medium-rare Royale with Cheese along with the salad, gherkins, mayo and fries. So serve up that layback together with a meaty carve and a side of extra crispy airs, baby!
THE JUDGES ARE HUNGRY!!

Entries must show a single ride with variation, with AT LEAST TWO COMPLETED MANOEUVRES to qualify. WAVE SIZE, LENGTH OF RIDE, FLOW BETWEEN MANOEUVRES AND TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY of the moves will all be assessed by the judges.

Each month will be considered a ‘Round’. JANUARY being ‘ROUND 1’ and so forth until ROUND 5 in MAY 2019.

The FIVE ROUND WINNERS WILL THEN BE PUT INTO A FINAL ROUND in June against each other where the same format will be rolled out.

Surfers must upload their entries in video format for us to upload to the website. Entries will be posted into the Round of the month they were received.

PUBLIC

Yes, that’s right! You, the public, will also have a say on who the winners are. The last three days of each month, public voting will be made live. This will help make the voting time fair for all surfers entered into that round, eliminating the unfair advantage of getting an entry in earlier. In the final round the public voting will be open for the whole month.

MONSTER ENERGY

A sports energy drink brand that is passionate about extreme sports and is getting behind the progression of South African surfing, in a big way. An advocate for pushing the boundaries, they will be looking for the ‘wow’ factor.

ZIGZAG
