British Bodyboard Club Tour: time to hit the water

After the postponement of the first event at Boscombe, April 9-10th sees the British Bodyboard Club Tour, supported by Auto-Sleepers, touchdown at Portrush in Northern Ireland.

This is the first time the newly re-vamped tour has left the mainland, and the BBC are amped to have support from the Causeway Coast Surf Club and Coleraine Borough Council in facilitating the event.

The event is provisionally scheduled for Saturday 9th so as to avoid a clash with the ISA selection event taking place at the same time.

With competitors traveling from both north and south of the Irish border as well as English and Channel Islands support, the event is already taking on a truly international feel. The organizers are determined that the event will go ahead, with provision being made if swell conditions dictate the event being moved from Portrush.

There is a full weekend of support activities planned, with entertainment scheduled in Portrush on Friday and Saturday evening at the Atlantic bar; including movies, DJs, and possibly a live band.
