The UK Bodysurfing Championships C.I.C. are stoked to announce that as well as Slyde Handboards, Korev Cornish Lager and the Fistral Beach Bar are also sponsoring their Championships this September.
The inaugural Slyde Handboards UK Bodysurfing Championships 2017 are to take place at Fistral Beach, Newquay, over the weekend of 16-17th September. There will be 4 heats, 2 semi-finals, followed by the grand final. Twelve bodysurfers from the UK (and 4 wildcard entries from overseas) will be competing for top prizes of 2 top of the range carbon fibre Slyde Bula Handboards.
There will be the opportunity to observe the bodysurfing “as it happens” from the comfort of the Fistral Beach Bar balcony. If you’ve never seen this sport practiced to the highest standards this is your chance. Modern innovations such as handboards have really made the extreme sport of bodysurfing more of a spectacle by bringing the bodysurfer out of the water.
Thanks to Korev Cornish Lager and the Fistral Beach Bar, everyone who’s around on Saturday can then chill out later that evening in the Fistral Beach Bar, have a drink whilst watching Slyde videos on the big screen. The prize giving is likely to take place here too (all events are likely to take place on Saturday, although Sunday is available as a back-up should there be no waves).
The UK Bodysurfing Championships C.I.C. look forward to making this event a “regular” on the Bodysurfing Calendar!
