2009 British Longboard Union champions

The final round of the British Longboard Championships was held last weekend at Gwithian, based at the Sunset Surf Cafe.

Surf was very small first thing requiring the Juniors/U16's and Ladies in first, but during the afternoon surf picked up from an expected swell, giving the Finals of the Open and Masters a clean 2-3 ft round the corner at South Godrevy.
