13th Jesus Longboard Classic to take place at Polzeath, 9-10 October
Organisers Christian surfers UK are very excited to be welcoming the longboard community to the 13th anniversary Jesus Longboard Classic, which will be held over the weekend of October 9 – 10 based at its usual venue of Tubestation using the beach at Polzeath.
After sadly being unable to host the event last year in person, due to COVID restrictions (although we did organise an upload video based event) it will be great to gather the longboard community back together again.
The Jesus Longboard Classic is a great contest for both those who have not entered a competition before and those seasoned contest surfers. The event has a well-deserved reputation for its friendly atmosphere and relaxed vibe, as well as the later rounds being highly competitive.
The event has always attracted some of the top longboard surfers in the UK, with previous winners including Ben Skinner, Ben Howarth, Ben Howey, Beth Leighfield and Emily Currie.
Due to the ongoing popularity of the event entries are limited, so for all those keen to enter we would advise surfers to get their entries in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, the portal is now open, so to enter follow the link www.christiansurfers.co.uk/register/jlc21
All the various elements that go along with this contest, the great vibe, hospitality in the Tubestation and exciting surfing will all be there again.
With the Jesus Surf Classic growing every year Christian Surfers took the decision 12 years ago, to give the Longboard community their own dedicated event. This was done to enlarge the entry numbers and increase the number of categories being contested. Also, to give the competitive longboard community a more focused stage to highlight the progression of UK longboarding.
The Jesus Longboard Classic, after the success of the last few year’s have decided to continue with a ‘Legends’ category (due to popular demand) which will cover 60 and above, and this will be restricted to a maximum of eight surfers – first-come first-served. In addition, we will also be holding the following categories: Grand Masters over 50, Masters over 35, Open, Juniors (U18) and Women’s. Entry includes a free competition T-shirt.
Deadline for entries will be 4th October, unless there is space available in the surfers chosen category.
We are also very pleased that although not forming part of their contest series, the event is being endorsed by the British Longboard Union (BLU).
A big thank you to all our sponsors and supporters who help make this exciting event happen – Including Cornwall Council, Tubestation, Finisterre, Christian Surfers, Nineplus, Era water safety and Beagle Media
