10th JESUS LONGBOARD CLASSIC
7 – 8 OCTOBER, POLZEATH
Organisers at Christian Surfers UK are very excited to confirm the dates and details of the 10th anniversary Jesus Longboard Classic, which will be held over the weekend of October 7-8th at its usual venue of Tubestation and using the beach at Polzeath.
It’s a great contest for both those who have not entered a competition before and those seasoned contest surfers. The Jesus Longboard Classic has a well-deserved reputation for its friendly atmosphere and relaxed vibe, as well as the later rounds being highly competitive.
The event has always attracted some of the top longboard surfers in the UK, with previous winners including Ben Skinner, Ben Howarth, Ben Howey and Emily Currie.
Due to the ongoing popularity of the event entries are limited, so for all those keen to enter we would advise surfers to get their entries in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The portal is now open, just follow the link www.christiansurfers.co.uk/register/jlc
All the various elements that go along with this contest, the great vibe, hospitality in the Tubestation and exciting surfing will all be there again, and perhaps a few extra surprises.
With the Jesus Surf Classic growing every year Christian Surfers took the decision 10 years ago to give the Longboard community their own dedicated event. This was done to enlarge the entry numbers and increase the number of categories being contested and also to give the competitive longboard community a more focused stage to highlight the progression of UK longboarding.
The Jesus Longboard Classic has, for the first time in its history, added a Legends category (due to popular demand) for those aged 60 and above, and this will be restricted to a maximum of eight surfers – first-come first-served. In addition, we will also be holding the following categories: Grandmasters 50+, Masters 35+, Men’s Open, Women’s Open and Juniors (U18). Entry includes a free competition T-shirt.
Deadline for entries will be 3rd October, unless there is space available in the surfer’s chosen category.
We are also very pleased that although not forming part of their contest series, the event is being endorsed by the British Longboard Union (BLU).
A big thank you to all our sponsors and supporters who help make this exciting event happen – including Cornwall Council, Tubestation, Finisterre, Christian Surfers, Nineplus, Zeaglass, Bird Sunglasses, George’s Surf School, Era Water Safety and Beagle Media
