Polar Bear Classic 2013 brought to by Mammoth Insulations
The Polar Bear Surf Classic was first held in 1981 as a fundraiser and an excuse to invite other clubs who could make the trek for a good party in the middle of winter – and although the surf is pretty unpredictable at that time of the year (it’s been more than often postponed through lack of surf) there has been some classic surf and spectacular surfing over the years.
The Polar Bear Classic is a competition like no other. As with the tradition of the contest, which is now in its 32nd year, it’s a very social weekend, bringing out surfers, friends, dogs and heaps of kids to enjoy a great weekend and the beautiful Sandy Bay Beach.
The great sponsorship support attracts the best surfers in the region and beyond. It was Mammoth Insulations inaugural involvement and quite a few of the staff of the company surfed in the comp as well as providing the prize money, beanies and tee shirts for everyone.
