Buccaneers Surf Classic

The annual Surf Classic held at Buccaneers on East London’s beachfront is upon us this weekend 23-24 November 2019. This traditional event once started out as a fun contest with the ever so popular Plate Event to keep all surfers involved, The Bucc’s Classic as we know it today started in the early 90s by liquor rep Mickey Lindsay and David Malherbe and the continuous support from Harold and Shelley from Buccaneers, a massive shout out to you guys from all the surfers! Also a big thank you to the Border Association Members that place a lot of time and energy into organizing these events.

Those days the surf contest was geared up for adults only as it was sponsored by liquor brands and was famous for Boat Races at the end of the contest. Used to be well supported by the Surfing Industry but slowly they dried up, but who kept the love and continuous support… Harold and Shelley from Buccaneers!! Legends!
