RELENTLESS BOARDMASTERS 2010
13th August 2010
Christian Surfers UK were asked again to provide refreshments anddistribute lunches at the 2010 Relentless Boardmasters, held at FistralBeach, Newquay.
Dispite a couple of mornings of horizontal rainwe had a fantastic week in our prime location over looking the whole ofFistral beach and the contest area.
Our main role was to serveteas and coffee, disribute lunches and water to all the athletes,workers and officials and provide an area to hang out away from thecrowds and noise of the event. We upgraded the CS tent this year with asofa, coffee table and carpet, adding a bit of comfort! Thanks to Alicefor finding the furniture.
The waves were on-shore pretty muchthe whole week, making conditions tricky. This didn't stop theinternational field of surfers putting on a great show. The UK Surfersdid us proud too with Sam Laniroy and Alan Stokes making it through theearly rounds. Reubyn Ash's ariel display got him to the quarters andRussell Winter narrowly missed out on a spot in the final, finishing third. The eventual winner was Marc Lacomare from France.
A huge thanks to the local CS crew - Alice, Andy, JonDale, Jon Timms and Matt for all their hard work. Thank you also to theCS crew that travelled down to help out - Daniella, Stevi, Paul,Francesca, Lauren, Jen, Jo and Jessie. We had such a fun week which wasmade possible by a big CS crew all working well together.
A final thank you to Matt and Sally and Jon and Emma for being such great hosts through out the week.
