SURF REPORT / STEVE BOWENS

Today sow the 2008 “South West Students Surf Kayaking Championships”, with 27 entrants representing Falmouth Marine School, Duchy College and Truro College from those who have only kayaked a few times to some hardened river boaters and even a couple of surfers the day proved to be a great success.

All competitors were split into six heats of four surfers to complete against students from the other colleges. The plan was to run three rounds with everyone surfing against different people in each round but after two rounds and time running out the decision was taken to scrap the third round and go straight to the semi finals and finals.



Throughout the day the surf was 1.5 foot gentle rollers allowing everyone to have a go at the green waves and ride some shoulders to the beach. There were some fine performances from all the colleges and great enthusiasm from all the students. The heats ran smoothly starting with 15min heats and then running 10min heats until the closely fought final, which returned to a 15 min heat to allow everyone a fare chance of catching there far share of waves.


The semi finals were drawn from those who had the best two performances in the two rounds and with Truro colleges large turn out and great performances they dominated the Semi finals and finals showing good confidence and skill, the Falmouth and Duchy guys were working hard as well but as the day drew on and cold set in there were some competitors had to retire early which opened up the final heats.




Overall the day was a great success with some great fun surfing and it was great to see so many young surf kayakers out there demonstrating good surfing etiquette even in a competitive environment. A big thank you to the days judges: Richard Uren, Drew Pilley, Joe Simms and Simon Clark. The results are below:
