British Championships 2014 – ReRun

The British championships this year got off to a slow start, with an ever changing forecast, we made the call to run. Unfortunately, the forecast did not go in our favour, but we did manage to get most of the competition run! With 2-3ft surf, the ladies, juniors, masters and waveski categories all got finished up after a long days competition, on a beautiful sunny day at Freshwater west beach.

This left us needing to find a suitable date to re-run the Open categories. Again the forecast didn’t look favourable, with strong winds forecast, we decided to postpone again to 29th and 30th of November.

On a brisk winters morning, we met at 8am at Freshwater west beach to find the surf absolutely pumping! Blue skies, no wind, and 4-6ft waves throughout the day made for a tough and exciting days competition!

After a great days competition, the heats were done, and we had a short wait to see who would be crowned British Champion!

Congratulations to:

Christopher Hobson – Open Class Champion – RIDE ECLIPSE

Paul Robertson – International Class Champion – RIDE EQUINOX

Aisling Griffin – Ladies Open Class Champion – RIDE ECLIPSE

Emma Fishleigh – Ladies International Class Champion

Jack Davies – Junior Open Class Champion
