Well, not bad a weekend weather-wise for many of us in the end?
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

    I really look forward to the day a top surfing event takes place at the new surf reef in Bournemouth. Sadly due to the lack of performance from the reef to date this looks highly unlikely! Classic British surf spots created by nature still come out on top!
