We would like to confirm that the 10th Anniversary Jesus Longboard Classic is ON.
We are really excited about the weekend ahead as it combines the organisation of Christian Surfers UK, the hospitality of the Tubestation and, of course, the longboard community.
Check-in will be at 8 AM on Saturday 7 October at the Tubestation (Polzeath, PL27 6TB) where you will also be welcomed with a light breakfast, free for all competitors.
The draw will have been confirmed just after registration, and we hope to get the first heat in the water around 8:45 AM, on the left hand side of the beach as we look out to sea.
For the first time this year, as a result of feedback from you, we have introduced a 60+ category (Legends) and we are really excited to be able to integrate that into the event.
Following the conclusion of the surfing activities on the Saturday, at around 5.00-5.30pm, we are very excited to be welcoming Sam Bleakley for a showing of his surf documentary on Ghana, followed by a question and answer session.
As always, on Sunday competitors will be welcome for breakfast from 8 AM, which will be followed at 9 AM by a very simple Surfers’ Blessing; there is no compulsion to attend but from the support we’ve had over the last few years many of you find it a great opportunity to start your Sunday in a slightly more reflective way.
Sunday’s surfing will get underway immediately after the Surfers’ Blessing at around 9.30am and, all being well, the presentation will be mid to late afternoon on Sunday.
For the 10th anniversary we are hugely indebted to so many people who have made this event possible including sponsors Nineplus, Finisterre, Zeaglass, Bird Sunglasses, Old Guys Rule, George’s Surf School, Tubestation, Christian Surfers and also our friends at Era Adventures who will be covering water safety. In addition a big thanks to Beagle Media, who are working with us for a video edit, and Andy Holter, our photographer
Thanks also to the volunteers who have given up their time freely, once again, to make sure that the event runs smoothly and, of course, a massive thank you to Tubestation for their hospitality.
If you have any last-minute questions e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a ring on 07774 138143.
Once again looking forward to what we believe will be a fantastic weekend and the celebration of 10 years of running the event.
Here’s a little taste of what’s to come with a great film by Beagle, who will be at the event this year too.
