Hi folks, all the above contacts are involved in running a Loggers Division at your contests in 2012.

To date there are 10 contest's this year that we know of that are running Logger Division's with The Malfunction & the Curly Mal Jam featuring Logging as a Premier Division.


Many thanks to Chris Brown " Brown Dogg Surfboards", Sage Joske " Valla Surfboards" & Thomas Bexon " Thomas Surfboards" who are leading craftsmen in the shaping field for formulating this Logger Criteria.


We have worked on the new judging criteria for 2012 & a basic overview encompassing Technical Nose Riding etc. will be available after March & passed onto all Contest Organiser's & Head Judges.
