Event #2 of the 2010 BJSC Burkie Junior Surf Series season sponsored by Tile Gallery was held at South Point on the 20th March 2010. The waves were solid with a 3-5 foot East swell running for most of the day. BJSC President, Alan Burke, noted that despite the solid surf it was a testament to the progress in our beginning juniors that water patrol was needed on so few occasions during the day. Many great performances were seen by all with solid hacks and lofty airs marking the standard that judges were expecting from our youth.

Bondi Beach To Host First International Surf Comp In Over 20 Years Kelly Slater Confirmed To Surf Bondi For The First Time In Boost Mobile SurfSho Presented by Samsung Sydney, January 2009 - World-class surfers Kelly Slater, Taj Burrow and Owen Wright will be busting out their best moves for the Boost Mobile SurfSho presented by Samsung, taking place on Bondi Beach from 12th to 14th March 2010. The first international surfing competition to take place on Bondi Beach in over 20 years, the three-day event will see the most exciting aerial surfers from across the globe competing for a $30,000 prize on Bondi’s famous waves. Nine time World Champion Kelly Slater said “It’s been a long time between drinks for a contest at Bondi, since ’88. I like Bondi a lot, it’s cool. It’ll be fun to be there and have a contest. It doesn’t sorta happen there very much. Usually its Rod Kerr running around the beach in his Speedos. But the rest of us are going to show up and wear our trunks. We’ll see you there.” The Boost Mobile SurfSho is also the first-ever surfing event at Bondi to be sanctioned by the Association of Surfing Professionals and is expected to attract more than 40,000 spectators including 13,500 from inter-state and overseas. Event spokes person and former pro-surfer John Shimooka said the Boost Mobile SurfSho is a unique, fun-filled event that will appeal to people of all ages. “Bondi is an iconic beach that hasn’t seen a surfing competition for decades and Kelly Slater has never surfed Bondi before. That alone will attract a massive crowd. Coupled with famous big-air specialists like Taj Burrow and Owen Wright showing off their best tricks, and free music and entertainment all weekend, we anticipate a standing room only event!” Alongside the spectacular surfing action, the Boost Mobile SurfSho will feature a free entertainment program, with Beautiful Girls tipped to headline the live music action on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Athlete signing sessions, giveaways and loads of other beach activities will provide fun for spectators of all ages. The Boost Mobile SurfSho will run from 8am to 5pm each day, kicking off with the Junior Surf Sho on Friday 12 March. The weekend will see the world’s best compete in the Surf Sho Open and main SurfSho events, a celebrity surfing competition to raise money for charity and a jet ski tow-in expression session. Sunday’s SurfSho competition follows a unique format in which a wheel is spun at the start of each heat, determining which tricks the surfers must perform. B, O, O, S, T letters are awarded to each successful manoeuvre and the six highest scored surfers who spell BOOST go into the final.
