Surfaced Pro – 2016

The Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay is super excited to be hosting a new event promoting gender equality in surfing – the first UK surf event to award equal prize money of £2,000 to both men and women riders.

Surfaced Pro at Watergate Bay on 3 & 4 June will focus on equality and showcase the best male and female surfers in the South West. The first event on this year’s UK Pro Surf Tour, judges will be awarding points on skill rather than the amount of waves caught, with each surfer’s two best waves counted and the highest wave score doubled.

The event is being organised by the students from the FdSc Surf Science and Technology course based at Cornwall College Newquay.

Student spokesperson Bethany Osborn said: “We are delighted to announce that we have secured the support of Extreme Academy based at Watergate Bay; an iconic surfing location on the north coast of Cornwall which has an active role within the surf industry and a venue that has hosted many competitions over the years.

Bethany continued: “This is a great opportunity for us to show case the work that we do at the college.”
