Event Call: 2020 English National Surfing Championships Postponed
2020 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships postponed to 24th & 25th October
This year has been like no other – 2020 has challenged all competitive sports in ways we could never of predicted, and Surfing and Surfing England have been no exception as we continue to adapt to the challenges and impacts of Covid 19. Following a tough lock down it has been incredible to see a resurgence of the whole surfing community, with schools and clubs adapting and more people than ever turning to the ocean for physical and mental wellbeing. We are so proud of our incredible English Surfing Community.
Throughout the pandemic, we have charged on (in Covid Secure ways) with our operational activity with the aim to deliver 2 Events this Autumn, one which has been completed (the 2020 Korev Lager English Adaptive Surfing Open which took place on Saturday 3rd October). This Event was a huge success and our ambitions are for the Nationals to be just as epic.
We have taken the decision to postpone the 2020 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships to the 24th & 25th October as the surf forecast for this weekend is not looking favourable. As we have an opportunity for a different weekend, we will give this our best shot and really hope for some decent swell and weather for the event and its surfers to showcase their talent!
Entry confirmations have been issued to all surfers who have secured places. Please ensure you have a confirmation email ahead of attending the event. Seeding and heat draws will be available at the latest on Friday 23rd October.
It is with regret that we have had to remove the U12 Boys & Girls Division from the Event as we simply can’t accommodate the number of groms wanting to compete, whilst delivering a covid secure event with the resources we have available.
Stay stoked & keep shredding – let’s hope for decent conditions on the 24th & 25th October and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
