O homem forte dos waveskis Solamanzi, anda agora mais ocupado a promover os primeiros waves da marca que surgiu, originalmente, para produzir acessórios para waveskis. Directamente da África do Sul, o report dos Waveski Trials 2010.

Shaun Holmes is the mentor of Solamanzi Waveskis. The brand was already well known by their great equipment and now, Shaun is currently developing a new range of Waveski's.

The following article was submitted by David Park-Ross of Western Province Waveski Association in South Africa. The first trials for 2010 were held on Sunday 7 March at Derdesteen. Conditions were superb and the weather was almost perfect, starting with a light south-easterly breeze and swinging to a light south-westerly by mid-day, with the temperature peaking around 30°C.

At the 09:00 start the waves were glassy and 3 - 4ft (Hawaiian Scale – see the Tech Note below) with icy cold, clear water and a scary shore break that confused even some of the most seasoned campaigners. As the tide receded towards mid-morning the waves hollowed out and consistent aerials were the order of the day for the top five competitors. What a spectacular show it was!

And the final results were:
