Bude surf kayak contest
by John Watson

Small surf and sunshine lasted throughout Saturday. 45 kayak surfers all took part in 3 rounds of 10 heats, before semi-finals and a final for the top ranking positions in the short boat open class. Congratulations to Steve Chivers, who took his first win in the main event. This now means the last 8 men's high performance contests (throughout 2009 and two so far this year) have been won by different people!

Sunday then became available for the Junior and Masters classes, as well as the Men's long boat. Conditions were larger, but affected by an on-shore wind. There was a good entry in the Junior and Masters, and these classes were as competitive as the Men's long boat always is. New arrivals were very welcome and we look forward to seeing people again at future events. Everyone surfed at least two heats in each class. In a day of very competitve heats, the Masters final stood out as a great display of surfing and workrate from all four finalists - any of whom could have taken the win.

Many thanks to Reed Chillcheater for prizes for all competitors on the Sunday. http://www.chillcheater.com/
