Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 9 July, 2015 - Fistral Beach, Newquay -Over 150 young people from across the UK will battle for the title of top school in the UK Schools Surf Pro-Am.
Fistral Beach in Newquay will be the setting of one of the country’s largest surfing competitions as school pupils abandon the classroom and take to the waves in their bid to become UKPSA Treviglas Surf Academy UK Schools’ Surf Champions. The event is a UKPSA ranking event for surfers on the tour, yet also celebrates and encourages all standards of surfer from across the UK. Everyone gets a chance to experience the thrill of top class, professional standard competition, held in the UK’s premier surf arena, the legendary Fistral Beach.
At Fistral beach on the 11th July, surfers age 7-18 will have their chance to shine at one of the UK’s most consistent summer wave venues. Can another primary school beat Perranporth School to the title? Will Tretherras see off the challenge from the likes of Braunton, St Ives, Bude, Porthcawl, Kingsbridge or the up and coming Humphry Davy school surfers? The event is organised by the students of Treviglas Surf Academy and is renowned for excellent waves. The students will study important event management skills in running the event, in areas such as marketing, finance and sales.
The event will feature under 18 boys, under 18 girls, under 16 boys, under 16 girls, under 14 boys, under 14 girls and the exciting under 12 open division. According to Ellis Attwell of Treviglas Surf Academy ‘the UK Schools excels in its aim of bringing together surfers of all standards from across the county, with the ethos on accessibility for all whilst ensuring that top level surfing by our promising juniors can still be celebrated. I would like to say a massive thank you to the UKPSA for their commitment to grassroots level surfing in this country. We have put in place the under 12 division because we meet so many stoked grommets during the primary school surf festivals we run.’
