These international stars will compete against a class field of European and local Basque surfers for the right to win the first ever Billabong Mundaka Challenge and €25,000 worth of prizemoney. The invitational only, one-day event has until the end of March to ensure flawless conditions and a minimum wave size of 6 to 8 feet.
Occy won the Mundaka Billabong Pro in 1999 on the way to his world title and first surfed the famous rivermouth more than 30 years ago. “Mundaka holds a special part in my heart, both the wave and the people of the town. Itʼs truly an honour just to surf there, let alone with these other amazing surfers. Youʼd need wild horses to keep me away from this,” said Occhillupo.
