Surfing Tradies To Compete In Worksafe Tradies Challange At The Concrete Heaven Of URBNSURF This Weekend

Published on 21/10/2022

Surfing tradies are set to battle it out in the concrete heaven of URBNSURF for bragging rights of top tradie surfer. 

The WorkSafe Tradies Challenge will be running on Sunday the 23rd of October and is set to be the best yet, with WorkSafe Victoria and recently introduced supporting partners, Milwaukee Tools and Heaps Normal offering $10,000 worth of prizes and giveaways.

The event is open to all tradies such as carpenters, painters, builders, plumbers, electricians and surfboard shapers. Also, it includes an Open division, master’ division and the newly introduced Open Bodyboard division. 

With this year’s Tradies Challenge being held at URBNSURF, tradies will be able to bring their best surfing to the wave pool with perfect sections on offer for them to throw down huge manoeuvres all day. 

The event will feature a mixture of previous years’ Tradies Challenge competitors like Callan Cross (Torquay) and Codie Jeffery (Cape Woolamai) as well as a flurry of new tradie competitors such as Dylan Hart (Jan Juc) and Luke Martin (Port Melbourne).  

“This year’s tradies have got the best platform at URBNSURF to battle it out in perfect waves,” said Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson.

“The enthusiasm the tradies bring to the day always creates a fun atmosphere!”

“A huge thanks goes to WorkSafe for their continued support of Surfing Victoria and the event.”

The event is expected to kick off at 1 pm on Sunday at URBNSURF Melbourne.
