#cactussummer Photo Comp 2018

Thanks to everyone who entered our #cactussummer photo competition. We had hundreds of entries, with some amazing shots in there showing the varied and inspiring adventures Cactus customers get up to with our gear - very cool!

After some fierce debate at Cactus HQ, a winner has emerged – congrats to Nicholas Covelli for this photo featuring Scottie Williams in his Cactus Supershorts. The pic was taken in Havasu Creek, a tributary to the Colorado River, USA, during a trip down the Grand Canyon Nicholas did with a bunch of Year 12 students.

A $250 Cactus voucher is on its way to Nicholas.

We had a hard time narrowing down the best entries, so we thought we'd share a selection of a few more of our faves for you all to enjoy.
