The wind did finally kick in (NW Force4-5) but not with any waves so a freestyle contest was run for the Amateurs, Youths & Junior fleets. The Pros got to sit around all weekend until Monday morning when the Pro wave event was called off.
Still the action was pretty good and all done in glorious sunshine on a crowded beach. The Amateurs did themselves proud as did the younger fleets with some really tiny folk out on wave kit pulling off freestyle moves – we were impressed! Full report next issue.
Amatuer Champ: Darren Mitchell
Youth Champ: Chris Murray
Junior Champ: Sam Neal
NEXT UKWA freewave event: WHITSTABLE, Kent – 10/11 June
