The Inaugural “Anything But 3” surf contest kicked off in slightly average waves at beautiful Mangawhai Heads on the NZ North Island's east coast on Saturday 23rd March 2012. The brain child of surfboard shaper Steve Morris, in collaboration with Tony Baker from Mangawhai Board Riders, saw over 40 surfers compete in the alternative event.
The rules were quite simple: Ride anything but your thruster. Boards of all shapes and sizes were laid out on the lawn overlooking the beach, ranging from Mini-Simmons hulls, handcrafted Kauri twin fins, and old school logs from the 1960’s to modern quads, eggs and fishes.
