Early in August 2013 people from all walks of life descended upon the small seaside village of Buffalo Bay, in the heart of the Garden Route, for the 5th Annual Ross Taylor Surf Contest: 3 days packed full of fun, sun, sand and surf.
The contest is a fundraising bequest left by a fanatic surfer - Ross Taylor - a young man with a big heart who loved life and surfing; who made it his life's mission to spread the message of LOVE and GIVING and to do it all with a joyful heart.
The contest is organised and run by a dedicated team of volunteers, and all proceeds raised at the event go to Hospice - Knysna.
So, this is where our story starts, in support of the contest, JB Custom Joinery donated a newly launched product that was to be awarded to a 'super stoked, super helpful; fun, sun and people loving child spectator or competitor between the ages of 3 and 12 - the prize was to be The Duett Bunk Bed: a funky, fully modular, knock down double bunk bed.
Our "spies" definitley had their work cut out for them as there were so many sand covered, sun drenched, stoked kids on the beach having loads of fun. By Sunday it was down to the final 3, and after many hours of deliberation it was decided who the winner was...Viviers Strydom a young, super stoked surfer who really showed our judges what it meant to be a part of The Ross Taylor Surf Contest. A big congratulations to Viviers from all of us at JB Custom Joinery, keep that fire burning!!
Once the dust had settled and life at Buffalo Bay had gone back to its quiet little village ways, we loaded up the bunk bed and headed to the Strydoms home where Viviers eagerly awaited the arrival of his new bed.
Many thanks to Mr and Mrs Strydom for the photos of a very 'stoked' Viviers with his new bed.
A big shout out to all those involved with The Ross Taylor Surf Contest, thanks for an awesome weekend and thank you to Elle Redman of Elle Photography for capturing the highlights of the weekend on camera.
