      The first event of 2008 in which Christian Surfers UK was involved took place on Saturday 5th January.

      The event was organised by the newly formed South East Cornwall Surf Club (SECSC) and it was a tag-team fun surf event held at Seaton Beach, South East Cornwall.

      Christian Surfers UK were asked to assist as one of our members was involved in the local community, and because several people knew of Christian Surfers and their track record with regard to organising competitions.

      The waves were good - 2-3ft, slightly on-shore - and ideal for a good fun day with an under 12s division, under 18s and an 11 team tag contest with both the normal and retro boards. 

      After a great day on the beach, which can be described as a bit wet, although mild, the presentations took place in the evening at the Finnygook Inn.

      Amongst give a ways for prizes there were Surfers’ Bibles for the winners.

      Christian Surfers UK were publicly thanked for their efforts, which they appreciated.  The guys from Christian Surfers Plymouth were amazed at how well they were received and everyone found the event extremely enjoyable.

      I think the Surf Club plan to hold another event in late September, so watch this space.  What a great start to the New Year, and thanks to the CS Plymouth volunteers, and for the invite from SECSC.
