THE SINGLE FIN MINGLE | 2016

 

On the second & third of April 2016 the second annual Single Fin Mingle was held at Sumner beach in the South Island of New Zealand. The event has a simple philosophy- to bring together like minds from far and wide to celebrate traditional longboarding and all that it encompasses.

Surfers had travelled from Australia, the U.K, USA and even Holland to join this year’s party and the local Sumner surfers were all buzzing to compete with some of the world’s best. Competitors were welcomed on day one with a cold day and messy waves but even the Christchurch easterly couldn’t blow away the good vibes at the beach. Round one of the open and women’s were completed before a collective decision was made to call the day short and start the Saturday night party early! It turned out to be a great decision (minus a few sore heads) as day two provided pumping waves and a perfect day- and that it was. The surfing was amazing and atmosphere equally as good.

A huge thanks to the Sumner community for coming together and making this event such a success. The buzz has already begun for next year we hope to see you all there!
