The bank holiday weather and conditioners weren’t perfect for the heats, but the competition was electric as some of the UK’s best surfers competed.  Lots of supporters braved the conditions as they showed their encouragement for the competitors, and all was rewarded for the Monday finals. The sun shone and the waves were almost perfect ready for one to be crowned the English Surfing Federation (ESF) champion.

The event was managed by students from Cornwall College’s FdSc Surf Science and Technology course in conjunction with the ESF. The competition marked the opening of the 2015 competitive surfing season and is the first stop on the UK Pro Surf Tour Circuit.

Adam ‘Bearman’ Griffiths successfully defended his title as Longboard Champion against the formidable talents of semi-final winner, Ben ‘Skindog’ Skinner, Sam Bleakley and Ben Haworth in 6ft surf. Emily Currie continued her weekend of success with a decisive win in the Disco Bead’s Women’s Final.
