Welsh surfing championships
The odd shower but enough sun to keep us all happy, even if those NE winds were a bit on the chilly side!
A quick update on the Welsh National Surfing Championships which took place on Saturday 1 May at Freshwater West beach in West Wales.
Waves at the start of the contest in Middle Bay:
Sadly, I was unable to attend the contest this year but apparently it all went smoothly with the heats being finished off in one day.
The contest area:
Half of the contest was completed in 2-3ft surf. The remaining heats will take place at a later date this year. Apparently, there are a number of competitors away currently, so it was felt it would fairer to hold the other heats once everyone is back in Wales.
Trophy time for the juniors:
Here are the winners from the weekend:
U12 - Max Payne, U14 - Jack Davies, U16 - Dave Williams, U18 - Tom Good, U18 - Longboard Connor Griffiths, U18 - Girls Olivia Jones and Masters - Greg Owen.
As usual a great effort from the Welsh Surfing Federation, Christian Surfers and assorted volunteers who give up their free time every year to make this event happen.Gull
