2018 Burton Automotive KING of the BOX confirmed for this Saturday(Sept 1st)
With a powerful low-pressure system heading NE this weekend organizers of the annual Burton Automotive KING of the BOX have called the event officially “ON”for this Saturday (September 1st).
Boxy is one of the most picturesque beaches in Australia and some of the countries best surfers are already hitting the area to prepare for the event.
This year the prize-money has been doubled to $4000 thanks mainly to our major sponsor Kim Burton.
Contest director Teza McKennaexplains the concept.
“Its one of the most unique waves in the world on its day” said Teza.
“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 awesome experience,” he added.
The event has four divisions:
- Open Women
- Legends(over 40 only)
Some of the top seeds include previous champions Chris Michalak(Fingal Bay) & Nic Squires (Sth Coast NSW)
Limited spots are still available so contact event director Teza Mckenna0401023661
