Jesus Surf Classic

Christian Surfing Federation
Croyde Bay, North Devon
10 - 11 September 2012

20th running of the Jesus Surf Classic coming to North Devon again

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 February, 2012 : - - Preparations are underway for the hosting of one of the longest running surf contests in the UK, the ever popular Jesus Surf Classic, which is coming to its traditional home of Croyde Bay, North Devon over the weekend 8th – 9th September 2012.

This year organisers Christian Surfers UK are celebrating the landmark 20th Jesus surf classic, and are looking forward to welcoming the 120+ competitors to an exciting weekend of surfing, skateboarding, and a few surprises!

To mark the 20th anniversary there will be increased prize money in all the divisions, and some celebratory T-shirts given free to all competitors. Weather permitting the purpose built skate park, and big move skate competition will be back, along with the numerous refreshment options ( BBQ, Crepe’s and fresh baked cakes !! ), and big screen surf movies in the marquee.

During the previous 20 years the ‘Jesus’ has only ever seen flat conditions on two days, and that's either good fortune, or perhaps as a result of the extra prayers sent up by the organisers, you decide !! Numerous of the U.K.'s top surfers have featured in the competition over the years coming through from the under 12’s (Groms division) through to the Masters ( Over 35’s ). 

Some of the statistics involved in running this event over the years, include, around £30,000 of prize money distributed, more than 2800 competitor entries, around 10,000 beef burgers consumed, over 1500 heats judged, and supporting the whole event over 2000 volunteers giving their time for free.

Please make a note of the date, as always numbers are restricted. If you are a previous competitor, you will get your entry form direct to you in around 2 to 3 months, however if you would like to register your interest in this event, please e-mail Phil at phil@christiansurfers.co.uk or keep checking back to www.christiansurfers.co.uk

As well as all the Christian surfers’ volunteers that support the event, we would like to thank the numerous local businesses, Parkdene holiday park, the local churches, and the surfers of North Devon for allowing us to use the beach during this weekend.

Also look out for the 6th Jesus Longboard Classic which will be running in October ( Date to be confirmed ) consisting of Open, Women’s, and Master’s and Junior categories. This stand-alone contest, which has been running since 2007, will be held at Polzeath, North Cornwall.
