Forget the riots, forget Greg Bird glassing his girl and think back to when the Island comp was the bee's knees of the bodyboarding calendar.
Well this year its all on again and with a new format its become the black sheep tour with no IBA tour riders being aloud to compete for whatever reasons.
Sunday will see the trials event go down on the famous Cronulla point from 8 am.
Its going to be tough with good waves predicted and a hot field of shred heads pulling on the rashie this year.
I will be covering the trials for RIPTIDE and also have a stall where you can buy a copy of DLUX for a very special sunday price!
come down check out the action and soak it all in. If you can't make it check out the webcast of the main event here.
