Riders came from as far as Norfolk and South Wales to compete in the final round of the BKSA Wave Masters.
The forecast was for no wind on the Friday – with the waves and wind building during the weekend
Friday we were all greeted with a lovely swell and riders had a great time surfing and paddle boarding in the glassy conditions.
Lee Harvey (Local fisherman and competitor) excitedly came down the beach that afternoon promising the best ever forecast for Sunday!!
Saturday the wind was light onshore meaning the surf that was there to be blown out – however by 3pm the wind was strong enough for riders to go out – an expression session was run in the small 2 ft waves.
Sam Moore put a good effort in on a 5ft Freestyle fish to win the juniors. Jackie and Debbie were next up in the ladies both going for backloops on their directional boards and catching a few waves.
The seniors saw Trevor Hale (last years champ) go for some big Kiteloops – however it was Paul Stebbing winning with his featherweight frame making the advantage of the light wind.
In the Men’s fleet seasoned competitor Denzil Williams made the most on his freestyle fish doing some fancy tricks and riding to take the win ahead of Will Bennett (who made a late recovery) and Mike Perry.
Saturday night was spent in the Sandsifter where all riders enjoyed the food laid on together with the DJ’s, which played on till 2pm!
