Riders came from as far as Norfolk and South Wales to compete in the final round of the BKSA Wave Masters. The forcast was for no wind on the Friday ? with the waves and wind building during the weekend. Friday we were all greeted with a lovely swell and riders had a great time
surfing and paddleboarding in the glassy conditions. Lee Harvey ( Local fisherman !) excitedly came down the beach that afternoon promising the best ever forecast for Sunday!!
Saturday the wind was light onshore meaning the surf that was there to be blown out ? however by 3pm the wind was strong enough for riders to go out ? an expression session was run in the small 2 ft waves. Sam Moore put a good effort in on a 5ft Freestyle fish to win the Juniors. Jackie and Debbie were next up in the ladies both going for backloops on their directional boards and catching a few waves. The seniors saw Trevor Hale ( last years champ) go for some big Kiteloops ? however it was Paul Stebbing winning with his featherweight frame taking the advantage of the light wind. In the Mens fleet seasoned competitor Denzil Williams made the most on his freestyle fish doing some fancy tricks and riding to take the win ahead of Will Bennett ( who made a late recovery) and Mike Perry. Saturday night was spent in the Sandsifter where all riders enjoyed the food laid on together with the DJ's which played on till 2am!
Wave MastersSunday dawned with riders briefing at 10.30am ? the swell was pumping and the wind a nice Cross Off ? perfect for Waveriding. We had to wait for the tide to drop down and the comp started at 11.45 am. Early upset was Will Bennett ( 07 champ) who went out against James (Smiler) Waters. The standard was amazing with some great waveriding in the 6ft surf. Will made it back through the losers final to the 4 man final. There were 3 Cabrinha riders in the final which made it interesting to judge ? however the riders had the best 3 rides scored and 15 mins to ride as many as they wished. Smiler rode consitently to take the win ahead of Will Bennett and Denzil Williams.
Next up the Seniors , Juniors and Ladies were run , judged by the Mens, there was some great riding from all concerned the waves still quite sizeable . The Juniors and Ladies had 3 heats each while the Seniors had a reporcharge. Top Junior was Daniel Maurice from Shoreham and Jackie Perry from Cornwall. Last events winner Paul ( Stubbie ) Stubbings lost out in his 1st heat having to get through to the final the hard way. The Seniors ( over 35 ) battled it out for 15 mins - Gareth Morgan narrowly ahead of Trevor Hale to take the win. Presenation was at 5pm with end of year Tropies being also given out (Fantastically crafted by Gary from North West kitesuring )
