Jesus longboard classic update - 4th Oct 2013

4th October 2013

With 2 weeks to go before the 7th Jesus Longboard Classic in Polzeath, North Cornwall, expectations are high after the success of previous years. The event will be held at its traditional venue over the weekend of 19th – 20th October, using the ‘Tubestation’ as its contest base.It’s a great contest for both those who have not entered a competition before and those seasoned contest surfers.

The Jesus Longboard Classic has a well deserved reputation for its friendly atmosphere and relaxed vibe, as well as the later rounds being highly competitive.This event follows on from the 21st Jesus Surf Classic held at Croyde over the weekend of 14th – 15th September, which attracted over 130 of the UK’s top surfers. Organisers Christian Surfers UK are very pleased to be continuing their partnering with ‘Nineplus’, ‘Tubestation’, ‘Finisterre’, and ‘360 photography’, and 'Era' to bring you the 2013 Jesus Longboard Classic.

With the Jesus Surf Classic growing every year Christian Surfers took the decision 7 years ago, to give the Longboard community their own dedicated event. This was done to enlarge the entry numbers and increase the number of categories being contested. Also to give the competitive longboard community a more focused stage to highlight the progression of UK longboarding.

As in previous years there are four categories, Open, Womens, Junior (U18) and Masters (over 35). The event has always attracted some of the top longboard surfers in the UK, with previous winners including Ben Skinner, Ben Howarth and Candice O'Donnell.

Polzeath Beach is ideal for longboarding, and no matter what the weather conditions the surfers will be well looked after at the event HQ ‘Tubestation‘- Polzeath’s unique “surf lounge”.

Contest Director Phil Williams, head of Christian Surfers UK said that “After such great events in previous years, we are very excited to be running the Jesus Longboard Classic again this year at Polzeath. As with ‘The Jesus’, there’ll be some great hospitality for the competitors, as well as a prize fund of £1,000, with first place in the Open event winning £250”. Looking forward to see if last year’s Mens and Women’s Open winner Angus Murray & Claire Smail can retain their titles.

This year as part of the event there will be a movie and pancake evening on the Saturday night from 7pm, which promises to be a great early evening chill time.Christian Surfers UK are very grateful to the key sponsors and also to Cornwall county council and and RNLI life guards for their assistance. Combining the resources of these organisations should make for a top class competition.We are also very pleased that although not forming part of their contest series, the event is being endorsed by the British Longboard Union (BLU).
