Bodyboard HQ team rider Alex Winkworth cleaned up at the wedge contest in Newquay today, taking out both the drop knee and open title. Conditions were close to out of control and with hot favourite Jack Johns to compete with Alex had a tough battle on his hands. With combinations of moves all the way to the beach Alex narrowly beat the favourite to take the title.

Alex is one of the most rounded bodyboarders in the UK and todays result showed that talent. We are stoked to have him on our team. Well done mate. Congratulations to all the other competitors including Olivia Smedley for taking the ladies title and Bodyboard HQ team rider Megan Penny for her 2nd place result.

Please excuse the poor quality of the shots, rain, poor light and mould in the lens made shooting pretty tricky…

Thanks to The British Bodyboard Club and the Bodyboard Depot for organising this event, also Maniac Bodyboarding for the support. Well done lads…

BODYBOARD HQ BRITISH NATIONALS BODYBOARDING COMP 2011- 8/9 OCTOBER PORTHTOWAN

BUILD-UP TO THE 2011 BRITISH BODYBOARD NATIONALS COMMENCES
The British Nationals, traditionally the culmination of the UK bodyboard contest calendar, are this year being sponsored by Bodyboard HQ, the UK’s longest running and biggest bodyboard shop, based in Portreath, Cornwall.

Owner of Bodyboard HQ Dave Heard said: “We’re proud to get behind what has become the most popular bodyboarding event in the UK, and we look to get in…volved in a lot more events in the future.”

The Nationals are provisionally scheduled for 8-9 October and will be the biggest event on the Auto-Sleepers British Bodyboard Club’s 5-event tour; potentially deciding the winner of the Tour’s Open, Drop Knee and Women’s sections.

With generous cash prizes across all 8 divisions, the weekend will be set to pull in competitors from the length and breadth of the British Isles.

Dave continued; “with the now established venue of Porthtowan being just around the corner from us in Portreath, it’s a great fit. We have always, and continue to, support local bodyboarders, top riders such as Eldred Hawke, Tim Brown, Alex Winkworth, Steven Hall and 5 X British champion Danny Catten. We are hoping that our team can make a big impact on the event once again”.

The Nationals will crown the bodyboarding champions in the age divisions (U14, U16, U18, Seniors and Masters) and the Tour the Champions in the Open, Drop Knee and Women’s sections.
