ST IVES BAY KAYAKSURF OPEN 2009

The event was supported by: Sunset Surf Cafe (Gwithian), Falmouth Marine School, Desperate Measures and demo boats from Mega Surf Kayaks and Valley kayaks.





St.Ives Bay / Cornwall, SW England

Saturday Morning all the competitors met at Sunset Surf Cafe for a hot cup of tea and briefing for the day.

With Gale force winds and heavy rain the first four heats ran at the Bluff before a pause to allow the tide to come in again over the bank and for the surf to improve. As the tide rushed in the surf got better and better with some fine performances include Ben Thomas getting a lovely cover up on the inside. With all the refraction off the racks at high tide there were some steep drops and bumpy rides.



Sunday saw a warm dry day with moderate cross chore wind but good surf of about 3ft. The semi and finals ran without interruption and all had some good rides.

I would like to make special thanks to John Watson for tabulating the scores when I was in the water and the guys from Desperate measures for helping out with the flags when everyone was starting to get cold and slow.
