SURF JUDGE TRAINING
30th March 2007
Calling all members who want Surf Judging qualifications
CS has more qualified judges than any other CS club in the UK and Ireland, and here is a further opportunity to get qualified. A number of our judges have now judged at key events such as the BPSA tour and UK Championships.
The 2007 UK Pro Surf Tour will see a host of judging courses on offer alongside various events. Judging courses will offer classroom theory the night prior to events followed by practical experience and assessment during BPSA events. The experience gained and connections made will aim to kick-start careers in judging for individuals who are motivated enough.
The BPSA is aiming to roll out these courses to enable more people to gain judging knowledge to bring a more unified, fair and unbiased measurement of surfing and also to help judges to keep in touch with the development of surfing and the direction of the criteria to reflect modern surfing.
The BPSA judging courses will run alongside the following UK Pro Surf Tour events:
SALTROCK OPEN - North Devon
Croyde N Devon
April 22nd - 23rd
O'Neill Scottish BPSA Challenge
