Newquay wedge bodyboarding contest 2013

newquay wedge bodyboarding contest 2013 day 2

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 today's 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 mold 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…
