Jesus Longboard Classic (17 - 18 October) - Latest Update news

30th September 2015

With two weeks to go before the 9th 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 17 – 18 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.

Organisers Christian Surfers UK are very pleased to be continuing their partnering with Tubestation, Finisterre, and a new supporter, Zeaglass, as well as Era (water safety), to bring you the 2015 Jesus Longboard Classic.This event follows on from the 23rd Jesus Surf Classic held at Croyde over the weekend of 12 – 13 September, which attracted over 140 of the UK’s top surfers.

With the Jesus Surf Classic growing every year, Christian Surfers UK took the decision nine 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. The same four categories will continue, Open, Women’s, Junior (U18) and Masters (35+), but for the first time, and due to feedback from the competitors, we will be introducing a new Grandmasters division (50+). The event has always attracted some of the top longboard surfers in the UK, with previous winners including Ben Skinner, Ben Haworth 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 prizes worth over £1,000, with first place in the Open event winning £250. Looking forward to seeing if last year’s Men's and Women’s Open winners, Connor Griffiths and Emily Currie, can retain their titles.

"Christian Surfers UK are very grateful to the key sponsors and also to Cornwall County Council and RNLI lifeguards 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).
