Surfing GB’s 2015 competition season has begun and the season is now in full swing as we saw the trophies awarded, bragging rights distributed and stoke shared in Bude over the weekend of April 25th & 26th in a record breaking 2015 Aquajuice British Schools Surf Championships.

122 entries from 38 Schools made up the entry for the event, which is a new record. The sponsors Aquajuice, Surfdome, Acer, Billabong, Santa Cruz, Carve Visionaries, Elements Hotel and Vospers motors all contributing to create a comfy and enjoyable hub for competitors and supporters in the small tented village erected for the event along the cliff edge overlooking the contest area.

Day one was one for the younger competitors in tow foot surf. Day 2 provided fun waves in the 2ft with the occasional 3ft range with some superb banks allowing for perfectly formed peaks to arrive from the shore line and the high scores began to drop.

The finals commenced as the crowd looked on from the cliff top, music and commentary filtering through the air as oooo’s and ahhh’s could be heard by the teams and their supports as their surfers hit the lips and chucked buckets in search of the judge’s approval.

As the hooter went for the boys under 18’s final the points were calculated and the winners were confirmed. Bude Haven A were the champion team as their team of six accumulated the most points for their performances and placings over the two days. The individual champions and finalists were as follows and if you want to see ALL of the heat results and individual surfer’s wave scores for the event, click on the links below the results.
