Woolacombe Boardriders kick off with the Tony Renyard!

April 4, 2011

The Woolacombe Boardriders first contest of the season kicked off with style yesterday with the Tony renyard being greeted with 4ft clean surf and nice sunshine!

It was a solid turnout by the Woolacombe crew, the juniors and the open surfers were put into the opposite sides of the draw to give everyone a bit more of a chance… but some of the mighty fell in the early rounds! First round saw some very tall upsets with Bcat and Saffa Steve getting robbed in the first round… apparently Bcat was heard saying that he threw the heat because he didn’t want to beat 3 ginger guys… but our sources say he kooked it. The juniors were shredding and by the time the final was on it was juniors vs men…

1st was Stuart Campbell who ripped the bag out of it, (not too surprising after his 4 months in Costa!), 2nd was young Will Bailey who was smashing big turns all day and charged! 3rd was Josh Witts aka Josh Witts pro surfer, who scored the highest wave of the day in his semi final with a stand up barrel followed by a huge floater… earning 8 points! 4th place was THE Archie Willis (WBSC Chairman)… who did well but had the easy route…

Thanks to all that turned up, the next contest will be the Grunta League 1, the Eyeball Hunter on the 17th April – Open & Junior divisions!

Special thanks to WBSC, Bcat and Rob Tibbles for the photopgraph!
