Jesus Longboard Classic Polzeath 18th – 19th October 2008

With the great success of the Jesus Surf Classic held at Croyde on 13th – 14th September, Christian Surfers UK are pleased to confirm that they will also be partnering with the Tubestation and nineplus to host the Jesus Longboard Classic at Polzeath over the weekend 18th – 19th October 2008.

The Longboard Division has been transferred from ‘The Jesus’ for the second year running to make the event more manageable, and increase the capacity for the longboard categories. At the event there will be four categories, the Open, Ladies, Junior and Masters (over 35) rather than just one. Polzeath Beach is ideal for longboarding, and the event HQ will be The Tubestation - which is a “radical converted church”, with half pipe skate ramp plasma screens and a coffee shop.

Contest Director, Phil Williams, head of Christian Surfers UK says that “After such a great event last year, we are very excited to be running the Longboard Classic again this year at Polzeath.  As with ‘The Jesus’, there’ll be some great hospitality for the competitors, as well as prize money of £1,000, with first place in the Open event winning £250.

Christian Surfers UK are very pleased to be supported by the Tubestation – www.tubestation.org :  and also nineplus www.nineplus.com a company synonymous with Longboarding, who are based just outside Newquay.  Combining the resources of these three organisations should make for a top class competition.

We are also very pleased that the event is being endorsed by the British Longboard Union (BLU), although not forming part of their contest series.

Entry forms can be downloaded from www.christiansurfers.co.uk - or watch out for posters and entry forms in surf shops near you. Should be an exciting event at a beach relatively un-used for contests.
