UK Bodysurfing Championships

Our latest Kitvision Ambassador Ben Schofield is competing in the first ever UK Bodysurfing Championships in a few weeks and we couldn’t be more excited!

The inaugural Slyde Handboards UK Bodysurfing Championships 2017 will take place at Fistral Beach in Newquay over the weekend of 16-17th September. The event will see 20 Bodysurfer’s battle it out in 20 minute heats, in hope of making it to the 25 minute grand final to become the first ever UK Bodysurfing Champ.

The Championships will be followed by an Expression Session, a fun event for spectators to have a go at Bodysurfing themselves. The Slyde Handboards will each be kitted out with a waterproof camera, giving spectators the chance to see what they can do in a 20-minute session, all the videos will be judged, and the best 3 will bag themselves a camera!

After that, everyone can come along to a chill out in the Fistral Beach Bar for the prize ceremonies. Why not go along and check it out? It’s completely beginner friendly and is a great way to get in the water and try something new! We’re rooting for you Ben, good luck!
