The forecast for the 3rd stop on the BKSA British Championships was looking pretty bleak. Not much wind was forecasted, but determined riders from around the UK headed to Troon, West Scotland nonetheless hoping that the forecast was wrong.
The local shop and boardseeker retailer – Extreme Zone had put on a great event with evening entertainment as well as daytime activites for when the wind didn\’t blow plus the local radio station was there to give the rundown.
After an initial day or two of no wind sunday finally delivered the goods – well a light and gusty 15knots, but enough to run the contest and all the riders had a good time
