We’re excited to announce this year we’ve partnered with The Single Fin Mingle for a weekend of surfing celebration in the small beachside town of Sumner, New Zealand.
In four short years 'The Single Fin Mingle - Traditional Surfing Competition' has fast become one of New Zealand’s finest homegrown events. This year the event is set to attract over 100 of the worlds best longboard surfers to Christchurch's small seaside village of Sumner for a jam-packed weekend of surfing competition, film screenings, art shows and of course one very special party.
The Mingle has a simple formula, bringing great people together and having a great time. The annual event is a multi-faceted festival based on traditional surfing displays, art shows, film screenings and musical performances. From the outset their vision has been clear; to develop a world class surfing event which brings together the very best surfers into the beautiful community and waves of the South Island, Aotearoa, New Zealand.
We’re equally as psyched to announce the introduction of The Rhythm Classic Groove, a showcase of surf expressionism. We’ll be sending ten of the most stylish male and female surfers who did not progress to the finals into the water for a 40-minute expression session. With no scores being kept, the crowd will determine who they think has the most electric surfing style.
