There is another Welsh contest next weekend, this time in Aberdovey. It is the UKWA / BSA Slalom Series 3 in association with Neil Pryde, JP and Boardwise. Boardwise will be the latest gear and the Saturday night promises a big party with live music and a barbecue. More info on the UKWA website.
Starboard team rider Sam Ross will be attending the event and bringing with him the brand new 2012 Starboard Quad IQ wave boards for everyone to try. The boards have just arrived in the country and Boardwise will in fact be the first shop to stock them. As well as the Quads, the whole Starboard collection will be available to try out alongside the 2011 Tushingham sail collection. For more info, check the Boardwise Website.
