Aquajuice British Schools Surfing Championships

Sleeting rain and small challenging conditions greeted the team on an early Saturday morning in Bude, some could say a standard UK competition! Head coach Chris and team photographer and parent Olly were fuelled on caffeine and ready to take on a big day of competition ahead.

Leo and Thomas made family history today when they were drawn in the first heat of the U14 boys division. On this occasion bragging rights went to Leo, who progressed in 1st with Thomas narrowly missing out, finishing 3rd place. We’re expecting many more heats with Leo and Thomas and already have a sweep stakes on the Month / Year that Thomas (3 years Leo’s minor) takes his first win against his older brother.

English National Championships

The first weekend in May saw the Global Boarders team descend on, a once again wet and windy competition site at Watergate Bay. The conditions looked perfect, however the closer you got the small the waves became, the stiff offshore winds were going to certainly make for a challenging day of heat strategies and nail biting delays from the over worked judging team.

Here’s Leo flaring up and chucking buckets of spray on a small windy wave.
