2017 Burton Automotive KING of the BOX confirmed for this Saturday

With a powerful SE swell expected for this weekend organizers of the annual Port Stephens Toyota KING of the BOX have called the event officially “ON” for this Saturday (August 20th).

Box beach is one of the venues in Australia and some of the countries best surfers are already hitting the area to prepare for the event.

Contest director Teza McKenna explains the concept.

Its one of the best wedges in the world on its day & the conditions for this weekend look amazing, it could be our best year yet”.

It’s a natural amphitheatre with a powerful left hand wedge that is suited to deep tubes and big airs, so it’s an unusual wave that breaks very close to shore and makes both competing and spectating an exceptional experience,” he added.

The event has four divisions:

  • Open Men
  • Open Women
  • Junior Men
  • Legends (invites only)

Some of the top seeds include previous champions Chris Michalak (Fingal Bay) Mitch Dawkings (Box Beach) & current Australian Women’s champion Kira-Belle Olson (Central Coast)

This will be the first year that the girls will be competing so it will be great to have a “Queen” to crown as well on Saturday.

Limited spots are still available so contact event director Teza Mckenna 0401023661
