The Human Cronulla Shark Island Challenge presented by Rockstar Games

An International Bodyboarding Association (IBA) Men’s World Tour event (MWT)

Shark Island, Cronulla – N.S.W – Australia

Trials – In memory of Brett Young: 16th – 18th of June

Main event: June 27th to July 31st, 2006 (A 35 day waiting period)

The Human Cronulla Shark Island Challenge – 10 years in the making –
the most prestigious bodyboarding event in the world today. $40,000 up for grabs

The Human Cronulla Shark Island Challenge presented by Rockstar
Games is celebrating its 10th year anniversary, with $40,000 AUD up for grabs.
The event will be opened by The Human Cronulla Shark Island Challenge Trials –
In memory of Brett Young which will enable a minimum of 6 lucky trials to automatically
qualify for the main event.

The main event will see 32 of the worlds most radical bodyboarders,
all trying to find the biggest barrel, vying to hit the biggest section to hopefully
be the top 2 riders from there heat of four to progress straight to the quarter
finals. First round will be eight heats of four, with 16 progressing to quarter
finals on day two of competition. This will set day two of the event as one of
the most exciting days ever with Human Cronulla Shark Island Challenge winner
for 2006 being announced on the headland with a hefty $20,000 AUD first prize
cheque on offer, still the most lucrative first prize cheque in the sports history.

Event Organiser, Mark Fordham - “This years event marks a special page in
the sport of Bodyboarding – an event that started as a local challenge between
the underground Cronulla Bodyboard crew and some of Australia’s main stream
bodyboarders back in the mid 90’s to being now considered as the most prestigious
event on the IBA Men’s World Tour (MWT) calendar, attracting the world’s
best riders and portraying the most radical side of bodyboarding to the world
stage today.

Mike Stewart
, 1999 Shark Island Challenge champion and an International
wildcard for this years event - “In the spectrum of bodyboarding; on one
side you have your first wave experience of maybe a thrilling white water run
to the beach; on the exact opposite end of this scale is the island event. To
survive it is succeeding, to actually perform on it, as the most technical in
the world can, is a mind altering activity that has to be seen to be believed.”

The $40,000 AUD Human Cronulla Shark Island Challenge
will gather the
world's best bodyboarders, including current IBA world Champion Ben Player (Australia),
2 x World Champion Damian King (Australia), defending event champion Guilherme
Tamega and 6 x World Champion (Brazil), Hawaiian Jeff Hubbard, Australian’s
Sean Virtue and Mitch Rawlins who, along with the rest of the International field
will now be battling it out for the $20,000 AUD first prize cheque.The 35 day
waiting period enables the organizers to select the optimum wave and weather conditions
at the Australia’s most famous bodyboarding wave – Shark Island, considered
by many as one of the heaviest reef breaks in the world. Shark Island is renowned
for its thick end section the infamous Surge, breaking on a shallow sandstone
shelf, incrusted with cunje and sharp gouging barnacles that leaves any unlucky
competitor that bounces of the reef with a good flogging to remember. Waves reach
heights of up to 8 -10 ft, as the wave jacks up on the reef it seems to have a
mind of its own. Often defying gravity, the pitching lip or curl of the wave can
be up to 4ft thick.

Its victims are never in control
, the island makes all the moves. As
the wave wraps and bends down the reef, the face of the wave becomes littered
with lumps and steps from the shallows contour of the reef, just inches below
the waters surface. It’s only the determination and skill of the competitor
that will define a true champion.

Many a local and competitor will stand by the old saying - Shark Island always
has the final say. The question is who will step up for the challenge in 2006?
