Bodyboard KIng Presents Shark Island Challange
We're stoked to get behind the Shark Island Challange for 2024!
LAST RUN OF THE EVENT WAS IN 2017. NOW THE SIC IS BACK FOR 2024.
In the heart of the Australia Sydney Basin’s southern beaches emerges a rocky island of mortal consequence – Shark Island. A battleground where the fearless embrace the ferocious nature of its shallow waters, leaving them licking their wounds and returning for more.
The Shark Island Challenge (SIC), Cronulla’s only truly international surfing event, had its inception in 1997 (winner was Matt Percy), and left a mark on the global bodyboarding stage, attracting international talents to challenge local heroes since then.
The SIC competition runs uniquely as a specialty event with a total of 24 bodyboarders – 20 athletes are invited from all the corners of the globe, including 4 who call the break their own, the local crew.
