The first of this summers inter-club surf-offs began with the oldest surf club in Britain hosting our Junior Surf Club at Sennen for a cracking day of surfing. Saturday 26th of May was probably the hottest day so far in Cornwall and while the surf itself was a little on the small side the surfing was blistering.
Mark ‘TinTin’ Eley, a super keen surf coach who works for GAS as well as volunteering with Sennen Surf Club, suggested that we get the groms together for regular surfing days with an informal competition followed by a beach bbq to round the day off. If they all go like this one we’ll be delighted.
Over thirty young surfers took part from both of our clubs and there were plenty of smiles as they took to the gorgeous blue waters at Sennen.
There is nothing quite like surfing with your peers at a different surf break for improving your surfing and I reckon you could watch them improve in front of your eyes. A great day out and all finished off with some chargrilled burgers lovingly prepared by Sennen Surf Club supremo, Pete “PT” Urquhart.
We will be hosting the return fixture some time in early July. Can we top that?
Can’t wait to find out.
