Cornish company, Sola wetsuits will be supporting British surfing by sponsoring the 2012 English Junior surf team traveling to France to compete in the European Junior Surfing Championships. After an appeal to the wider surf community for financial assistance fell on deaf ears, Sola wetsuits has taken the opportunity to get behind the team who have been entirely self funded up until now.
The cream of English junior surfing will be competing against 14 countries in the European Junior Surfing Championships held at Lacanau, France from the 8th to 16th September.
This is a high profile event on the junior surfing calender which is held every two years and sees Europes finest junior surfers battling for the prestigious title.
Team manager Pat Renaud has said of the sponsorship arrangement “I’m very pleased to announce Sola Sports have kindly agreed to come on board as a primary sponsor. This is a huge relief, and great that there is a company who are willing to support our English Junior Surfing Team. Sola will be our leading sponsor”
