The Monster Energy Pitstop powered by Zigzag in association with O’Neill, Vestal, Skullcandy and Neff is a tube riding contest open to any South African surfer. It doesn’t matter if you’re a guy, girl, working class hero, grom or a pro – any SA surfer is eligible.
All you have to do is upload a video of yourself or another Saffa getting pitted to monsterpits.co.za and you’re instantly in the running. Every month for five months one winner will be selected from all the uploads and win the monthly prize valued at over R10 000, as well as become a finalist for the ‘Pit of the Year’, which offers a chance to score a further R15 000 cash plus a Vestal Heirloom Chrono watch (R5500 value) for the surfer, and R10 000 cash plus a Skullcandy Air Raid Speaker (R1999 value) for the videographer.
Team up with a videographer, shoot selfies, it doesn’t matter: any form of video footage is eligible. Your wave can be from anywhere in the world. The only conditions are you have to be a SA citizen (with the exception of surfers from Namibia and Mozambique) and entries must fall within the contest window period. All entries must include one ridden wave and slow-mo replays are allowed, but keep your clips under one minute. The wave has to be completed i.e. the surfer has to make it out the barrel.
The contest runs from 1 June to 31 October and entries are unlimited. To get the ball rolling, we’re making any barrel from 1 April 2015 eligible for the first month of competition.
GET PITTED, WIN BIG!
