With a favourable surf forecast, and the weather looking good, all looks set for a great Bude Surf Classic which is being held over the weekend of May 16th and 17th.
With over 25 in the new Grommets division already entered and the other divisions filling up, organisers Christian Surfers UK, are not far away from having some divisions full before the weekend.

The event which this year includes a new Groms division ( U14 Category ) is held at North beach Widemouth bay, North Cornwall, which makes a great venue for the spectators.
The winner of the Men’s Open Division will receive £200 cash, the winner of the Longboard Division will receive £100 cash and all Categories will receive trophies and prizes.
Entry fees range from £10 - £16 (depending on Category) and include a free contest t-shirt. Last year Open surf winner Joss Ash, will be aiming to retain his title.
