BRITS LEAD FIELD AT BOARDMASTERS

BRITS LEAD FIELD AT BOARDMASTERS

BOARDMASTERS SURFING LAUNCHES

The Boardmasters, Quiksilver Open launched yesterday in wind-affected three-to-four foot surf at Fistral beach and completed the opening two rounds of competition of the men’s event as well as the opening round of the women’s Boardmasters, Roxy Open.

Competitors made the best of the conditions on offer and put on a good show for the Newquay locals and tourists coming to enjoy the beach at Fistral.

Bude surfer Jobe Harriss (GBR), 21, opened his account with a solid heat to rack up a 14 points total and advance into the third round of competition in Cornwall. The long time WSL competitor had to put his surfing career on standby following the loss of his main sponsor this season and was extremely happy to put the competition jersey back on on home turf.

“I had a free surf this morning and barely did a turn so I was a bit worried, but luckily now at low tide it’s nice and steep and has a few sections!” Harriss stated. “Pretty much every U.K tour event ever is at Fistral so I’ve surfed loads of heats down here and I knew it was going to get better at low. I came fifth here last year, this year’s feels like it’s got a stronger field but I’m confident and hoping for the best.”

2016 Boardmasters runner-up Angelo Bonomelli (ITA), 26, managed to escape a treacherous Round Two matchup and advanced in second position behind Liam O’Brien (AUS) to keep his hopes of reaching the finals again alive. The Italian surfer returned to Fistral to launch his European season and try to improve on his overall ranking.

“I really struggled to find good waves and honestly didn’t expect to make it through this heat,” Bonomelli admitted. “Last year’s was my best result ever and I don’t know if I’m capable of doing better but I sure am going to try my hardest! I love the vibe here, I’m staying with the Timson family and it’s like being home.”

An avid traveler, Bonomelli found in Cornwall reasons to come back and enjoy the special vibe the place has to offer. As much as surfing a final was a highlight for the Italian surfer last year, the general atmosphere at Boardmasters is really what got him to come back.
“The weather here changes every ten minutes so you have to prepare for everything but some days we get really good waves and even pretty much to ourselves. People are super nice and it’s a pleasure to come back. I even went to the music festival last year and it was fun, a bit too crowded for me but if you’re into music you just have an incredible night there. It’s a great way to get more people to the beach and show them competitive surfing, there’s also skateboarding and other sports so it’s a festival for everyone and a great way to enjoy a sunny summer day.” Bonomelli

Fresh off a victory at the Murasaki Shonan Open in Japan, Lliam Mortensen (AUS), 20, managed to keep his momentum going today and made his way into Round Three of competition. Currently sitting right outside the Top 100 on the Qualifying Series, the Australian is after a few more ranking points to access the prestigious QS10,000 events later this season.

“I’m glad to be here for the first time, it looks like an amazing place,” Mortensen said. “It’s tricky to surf a heat when you have no idea what the situation is, but you just kind of have to score your waves yourself and hope you’re surfing better than your opponents. Japan was awesome and it’s hard to come back in your first event after a win, but I’m going to try and better a few other results to hopefully get into the Top 100.”

A two-time event winner in the Longboard division at Boardmasters, Edouard Delpero (FRA), 27, got off to a good start on his shortboard as well today. In the hunt for another European longboard champion title, Delpero is also a threat on the QS and will try to better his best result at Fistral, an excellent third place a few years ago.

“I dare say this is classic Newquay conditions for Boardmasters,” Delpero commented. “It’s pretty windy but there’s waves out there if you can find the right sections. It’s good to come early and do the QS so you can work out the conditions. We have a great battle going again with my brother Antoine and Emilien (Fleury) leading this time, so I look forward to getting the longboard out and fight for the title.”

Other notable results include the successful starts of British surfers Liam Turner, Angus Scotney, Gearoid McDaid, Alan Stokes, Luke Dillon, Jay Quinn, Harry Timson, Joss Ash, Reubyn Ash and Seth Morris.

Capitalizing on conditions on Day One, the women then entered the arena to complete their opening round of competition at Boardmasters, Roxy Open.

Argentina’s Lucia Cosoleto belted the day’s highest combined heat total for the women, with a solid 13.17 to advance into the top seeds’ Round Two.

Longboarder and current No. 3 in the world Honolua Blomfield (HAW), 18, decided to enter the QS event as well and marched right through the opening round early this evening. The Hawaiian surfer jumped on the opportunity to visit a different part of the world she was yet to explore and will be a force to be reckoned with in both the short and longboard events this week.

“It was my mom and I’s dream to come here and I met a friend from here about a month ago in Bali and decided to come,” Blomfield said. “I came mostly for the longboard but thought I’d enter the QS as well just for fun! I’ve been here a couple of days and I love it so far, the festival is something really different from what I’m used to.”

In the following heat, former Championship Tour athlete and famed musician Lee-Ann Curren(FRA), 28, managed to advance into Round Two despite receiving an interference and being judged on her best wave only. The French surfer had earlier that day played her music for the public at Fistral during the Day Sessions.

The competition window opens Friday for Boardmasters, Jeep Men and Women’s Longboard, with a first call at 7:30 a.m for both the men and women. Qualifying Series athletes will reconvene at 11 a.m.

Boardmasters are scheduled from August 9-13, 2017 at Fistral Beach, Cornwall – England. For all results, photos, video highlights and press releases, log on to worldsurfleague.com

Huge home names and visiting international stars will battle it out for the top spot, the formidable Edouard Delpero will be laying it on the line, as well as exciting wildcard entries from Boardmasters Ambassador Luke Dillon who’s consistently impressed at the prestigious competition.

Renowned top French rider Justine Dupont will be looking to capitalise on her incredible agility and skill, while Lee Ann Curren will be on double duty, competing at the highest level as well as performing at the legendary Day Sessions on Fistral Beach.

Boardmasters – IT’S NEARLY TIME TO PARTY!

The final countdown to the Boardmasters is on. Time to pack your tents* and festival gubbins and think about heading to the coast for five phenomenal days of fun.

The music side of things you’ll know well, as we’ve been banging on about the epic line-up for a good few issues now but with headliners like Alt-J, Jamiroquai and Two Door Cinema Club what’s not to love? There’s heaps of other good gravy across the festival and we’re particularly looking forward to seeing The Flaming Lips, Slaves, Wild Beasts, Stormzy, DJ Shadow, Formation and Carve alumni Mickey Smith’s new outfit A Blaze of Feather. It’s one of the best festivals of the season so we’re all understandably frothing. The music bridges Fistral and Watergate and of course continues with the after parties.

On the surfing side the welcome return of the WSL sees shortboard and longboard world tour contests. The highly anticipated Boardmasters QS1000 and LQS1000 events will run from Wednesday 9 until Sunday 13 August featuring a brace of internationals and home favourites like Lucy Campbell in the Women’s, perennial Boardmasters hero Ben Skinner and ubergrom

Stanley Norman debuts as the youngest ever Boardmasters Men’s Open competitor at 13-years old. But he can’t claim youngest overall as Sky Braun takes Stan’s 13 and drops an 8-years old in the Women’s Open?! And don’t miss out on the signing sessions at Fistral Surf Village, including Lucy Campbell, Ben Skinner and Luke Dillon with more pro surfers to be announced. Basically it’s the place to be until music time, and with Beach Sessions, Boardmasters Music Festival and After Parties, there’s something for everyone.

This year the #ROXYFITNESS movement is also coming to Boardmasters, where you can join them for female only morning yoga sessions at Watergate Bay overlooking the beautiful Cornish coastline. So bring an array of colour to your morning by grabbing your brightest yoga wear, your closest friends and get ready to channel your inner yogi with a taster session held by one of Roxy’s inspiring ambassadors. The yoga lessons are free but you’ll  need to book up in advance for this at the Boardmasters website. For all the info about yoga and the Wellbeing Area at Watergate click here 

For last minute tickets hit up www.boardmasters.co.uk but don’t leave it to late as last year sold out on some nights. Nothing worse than missing one of the best events of the summer!

*Please ensure you take your tent and everything you bring home with you. Festivals are dependant on the goodwill of landowners and local authorities so leave no trace and keep Cornwall pristine.

With so much going on book your tickets early! For tickets and information go to: www.boardmasters.co.uk

It has just been revealed that the producers behind one of the highlights of last years festival ‘Coney Island’ will be returning with a huge new area and hedonistic simulation, ‘The Underworld’. Boardmasters takes place between Wednesday 9th – Sunday 13th August 2017, tickets are on sale NOW via the Boardmasters website.

The Underworld is a time trip through tunnels to long lost iconic clubs and the legendary parties that took place within their walls. Journey back to a representation of The Blind Pig, a hard-bop prohibition era boogie-woogie club from 1930s Detroit or head to the classic Bristolian 60s Bamboo Club for the best in reggae and dub. There’s no better place for fans of disco than Coney Island, inspired by the infamous venue in 1970s New York and for revellers who prefer hip hop, funk, post punk and early rap there’s 1520 Sedgwick Ave, a nod to the legendary 1970s building in The Bronx where these genres came to life.

Each venue will host an eclectic mix of performers. From The Ivy Drip and The Lillettes in The Blind Pig, to The Downbeat Melody Soundsystem in the Bamboo Club to Ere Wax and Russian Kay in Coney Islandand 45 Live, a collective of DJs from across Europe and the USA in 1520 Sedgwick Ave. High demand is to be expected as the sounds of the revolution resonate all night long. The Underworld Experience, located in The Land of Saints area at Watergate Bay, will be produced by The Masked Ball’s Alec Short and Kelvin Batt. It will open from 4pm until 1am each night, apart from Sunday when the area will open at the earlier time of 3pm for The Alternative Sunday Service hosted by Reverend Michael Alabama Jackson and The Hail Mary’s.
