SOME of the country's top surfers including Aca Raculo and Isei Tokovou will descend on Namotu Island tomorrow to participate in the third annual Craig McElrath Memorial competition. A total of 25 surfers are expected to enter the one-day event.

Fiji Surfing Association secretary Edward Lovell said there would be many junior surfers.

"The surfing competition will have a series of longboard events in the open and junior divisions," Lovell said.

"We are grateful to Namotu Island Resort to host the event and to McDonalds Nadi to sponsor the prizes.

"The competition is being held in the memory of Craig McElrath who was a director of McDonalds as well as an enthusiastic surfer and longboard competitors."

"He was secretary of the FSA prior to his untimely death in 2010 due to cancer."

Veteran Ian Muller will participate in the competition.
