As you will no doubt be aware the current Island Champ has now become the British Senior Champ as well. Johnny Wallbridge took out the title in pumping 4-6ft surf at Croyde Bay in Devon last weekend with Jersey’s Ben Chapman coming in 3rd. We’ll be running a full story with words from Johnny and pics and footage from Tim Gaudion soon but this vid from the organisers gives you a taste of the event.
Click through all the images below that Tim Gaudion kindly snapped for us last weekend of all the Under 10s and Under 14s in action.

UPDATE: Just another reminder to everyone that we will be looking to hold the 2015 Island Championships this weekend and the following one (on Saturday and Sunday 10/11 and 17/18 October.) Competitors for the MEN’S OPEN should check in at Portinfer Carpark at 8am on Saturday morning. We will look to run the Open through the day and hopefully the Longboarding event on the push at Vazon this Saturday, The Masters division is also a possibility although that will be later in the day. Conditions permitting we will run the Vets and the Ladies event on Sunday morning at Vazon with the Junior events being held the following weekend. The swell is looking really promising but things are moving around a lot out there so stay tuned to Facebook for updates closer to the time.
