Gul Night Surf: the dark side of surfing...

Yet again we were blessed with amazing sun & fun contestable waves for this years Gul Night Surf event at Fistral beach, Newquay.

The event kicked off on Friday with the evening host to a pretty fierce SUP battle as the tide pushed up.

In near darkness Tim Mellors, Elliot Dudley, Alex Murray & Chris ‘Guts’ Griffiths battled it out, briefly appearing as they came within the floodlit inside section. It was that good looking welsh god Chris Griffiths who beat his fellow countryman Elliot along with Tim Mellors & Alex Murray into 1st place.
