Cape Town Big Wave Trust (CBWT) has been put in place to represent, improve safety and protect the interests of all the big wave surfers who regularly charge out at Dungeons and Sunset in Cape Town. With this in mind Rebel invited the Cape Big Wave Trust to vote on a list of 20 local and 5 international big wave surfers to participate in the 2017 Rebel Sessions one-day invite paddle Session.

RRD - Roberto Ricci Designs  are proud to support the Rebel Sessions  initiative to reward and encourage cold water big wave riding in the South African winter months. Roberto Ricci says: “ As much as I enjoy the Cape Town summer months, I admire the local big wave riders who go out in the winter months and surf Dungeons at its best. Paddling out there into the biggest waves is inspiring, especially for the next generation of surfers. Rebel Sessions initiative to partner with organisations such as waves4change, bringing township kids into surfing, away from the street life, gives big wave surfing an additional value that we enthusiastically support.“
