We’ll be at the inaugural Wavescape Fish Fry at the Bluebird garage in Muizenberg on Saturday 30 November. The unique combination of surfboard fish and real fish comes from a collaboration between the Wavescape Surf Festival, WWF-SASSI and the reality TV series Ultimate Braai Master in a day of entertainment in the historical heart of surfing in South Africa, Muizenberg.
Surfers are invited to the used surfboard market in the afternoon, where they can bring up to three boards including any twin-fin fishes they might have to trade or sell.
The market will be followed by a fierce showdown in a fish “braai-off”. The teams will use sustainable fish on the WWF-SASSI green list.
The Fish Fry forms part of the Wavescape Surf Festival, presented by Pick n Pay, and includes fun edutainment events for the kids by the Save our Seas Foundation; Jack Black Beer and other craft brews, a glacéau vitaminwater bar; food stalls, surf artists and local surfboard craft demonstrations, followed by music by DJ Oscar from Masi and headlined by DJ Catherine Grenfell from 5FM.
Proceeds of the Fish Fry go to the Isiqalo Foundation’s Waves for Change programme, which uses surfing as an educational tool for disadvantaged communities.
The inaugural Fish Fry takes place in the Blue Bird Garage, Muizenberg, from 3pm on Saturday 30th November. Bring your spare boards to swap or sell (ten percent commission will be charged on all board sales). Entrance is free until 6pm, and R30 at the door for the evening entertainment.
