Jesus Longboard Classic 2018 – Re-scheduled date agreed for March 2019
It looks like being an exciting year for the UK longboard community after Monday’s announcement of the ISA World Longboard Championships being held in France in late May 2019.
A second piece of exciting news (not quite on the same level) which we hope the longboard community appreciate, regards the cancelled 2018 Jesus Longboard Classic. After much consultation with the hosts Tubestation, individuals, key organisations and clubs including BLU and Hotdoggers, organiser Christian Surfers UK has decided to re schedule the event for 23 – 24 March 2019, which should kick start the new longboard contest season.
Due to the ongoing popularity of the event (over 80 registered for the previous date) entries are limited, so we would advise you to get your entry in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The portal is now open, just follow the link here.
The event will be held over the weekend of 23 – 24 March 2019 at its traditional venue of Polzeath, North Cornwall. All the various things that go along with this contest, the great vibe, hospitality in the Tubestation and exciting surfing will be there again, and perhaps a few extra surprises. Back by popular demand will be the Legends 60+ category; this will be restricted to a maximum of eight surfers – first come, first served. In addition we will also be holding the following categories: Grand Masters 50+, Masters 35+, Men’s Open, Women’s Open and Juniors U18.
Entries will be strictly limited, and we will be confirming entries and giving competitors update information via e-mail, so please ensure if registering you include your current e-mail address and please also check your junk mail folders for mail [email protected] . This will make sure that everyone receives confirmation of their entry place. Entry includes a free competition T-shirt.
Feel free to forward this update to your friends. Deadline for entries will be 18 March, unless there is space available in your chosen category. We very much look forward to having you with us again this year as we start the Jesus Surf Series. We are always keen to receive feedback as we continue to look for new and innovative ways to serve you, the surfing community.
A big thank you to our confirmed sponsors and supporters who help make this exciting event happen – Tubestation, Finisterre, Bird Sunglasses, Old Guys Rule, and Beagle – with more to follow. Era will be providing water safety cover as they have done in previous years.
A further date for your diaries is 12th and 13th of October when the 2019 Jesus Longboard classic will also be held at Polzeath.
If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact us [email protected]
