UK Bodysurfing Championships C.I.C.
The UK Bodysurfing Championships C.I.C. is a Community Interest Company registered at Companies House on 28th June 2016. The company has been set up specifically to encourage all those interested in the sport of bodysurfing to join in and compete in an annual Championships.
The first annual UK Bodysurfing Championships are to be held at Fistral Beach, Newquay in 2017, over the weekend of 16th/17th September.
These Championships (officially sponsored by Slyde Handboards) are to be known as the Slyde Handboards UK Bodysurfing Championships.
This one-day event will be a 16 bodysurfer format event with 12 competitors from the UK along with 4 wildcards from overseas. 2 competitors from each 20 minute heat will progress, culminating in a 25 minute final.
We are now on the lookout for bodysurfers from the UK as well as overseas who would be interested in competing in this fantastic inaugural event.
All UK Bodysurfers need to become members of the UK Bodysurfing Association first in order to be considered, whilst overseas competitors can register their interest via the Contact form. As there are only 16 places in total we encourage everyone to either join or get in touch as soon as possible.
Official UK Bodysurfing Championships T-shirts are now available to order online. All profits from the sales of Championships T-shirts go towards holding the Championships! You can help support the Championships by wearing their official T-shirts.
We are very pleased to announce that Korev Cornish Lager and the Fistral Beach Bar are also sponsoring the inaugural Slyde Handboards UK Bodysurfing Championships. Working together we have arranged for a chill out to take place at the Fistral Beach Bar on the evening of Saturday 16th September, after the days’ events. This is likely to include the prize-giving ceremony.
The objectives of the Company are to carry on activities which benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) to:-
(a) Promote and raise the profile of the sport of bodysurfing within the UK.
(b) With friendship and sportsmanship in mind (and taking advantage of all available sponsorship opportunities) to commence and maintain a yearly “UK Bodysurfing Championships”; to be held in Newquay, Cornwall.
(c) To liaise with the UK Pro Surf Tour (UK PST) organisers in order to establish this “UK Bodysurfing Championships”, including deciding upon event locations, judging, PA systems etc, as well as insurance.
(d) To set up a “UK Bodysurfing Championships” awards ceremony.
(e) To exist as a non profit making organisation with all funds being spent in continuing and growing the sport of Bodysurfing within the UK.
