2009 Auto-Sleepers British Bodyboard Championships will be held at Porthtowan

Following fast on the heels of the Wedge Air Jam, the 2009 Auto-Sleepers British Bodyboard championships at Porthtowan is rapidly approaching.

With a bumper prize purse again of £3,000 thanks to Auto-Sleepers and the other generous divisional sponsors, the British bodyboard Nationals are amongst the most hotly contested national championships in Europe; and the only ones to offer cash prizes across all eight divisions – from Youth through to Masters.

After some classic warm weather swells in 2009, hopes are high that the late summer date of 5-6 September will again produce the goods and deliver a competition to remember.

Rich Hall, of organisers the British Bodyboard Club said: “Last year’s Nationals were a great event. It has become a real focal point of the UK bodyboarding calendar and has drawn in all the top competitors”.

He continued “the fact that we offer a substantial prize purse gives all our guys something to focus on. The better the purse, the better the field. The better the field, the more spectators it pulls in. This is turn supports the local businesses that sponsor us as well as the National ones”.
