There have been many great surfers over the years who have participated in surfing events. In South Africa we have the Ballito Pro and the Jefferys bay pro which draws many surfers from around the world to our shores.
South Africa has produced some great surfers like Shaun Tomson, Martin Potter, Pierre Coetzee, Paul Canning, Travis Logie and recently Jordy Smith. Glenwood is proud to have Surfers such as Jordy Smith and Travis Logie pass through our ranks at some time. Jordy having recently been in the top ten surfers on the world tour.
The Glenwood surfing teams over the years have performed exceptionally well winning the schools championships over the years. We are proud and want to maintain a healthy, competitive level of surfing in years to come.
The Glenwood 1st and 2nd surfing teams participate in the Kwazulu-Natal Schools Surfing Championships. The competition is run in a tag team format. Five surfers compete and score 2 waves each. The scores for each of the waves are then used. This takes place at North Beach Durban.
