Alder Sportswear also sponsor UK Championships
Alder Sportswear are the latest sponsors of the UK Bodysurfing Championships 2019, taking place this autumn at world renowned Fistral Beach, Newquay.

The UK Bodysurfing Championships CIC are extremely pleased to have Alder Sportswear as one of their sponsors for 2019, and look forward to working together with them for the greatness of Bodysurfing for many more years to come.
