2009 Men’s Surfing Champions

 

  1. Jock Patterson
  2. Matt Argyle
  3. Nick Watt

 

The competitors had to attend all four events and compete. It was a tough season with over 40 riders taking part. It started in May 2009 at West Wittering beach, a successful distance race was held, but the huge tide managed to flatten off the surf. Next stop was Gwithian Beach in June, the conditions were also not ideal, as it was windy, however a counting surf and distance round was held for all SUPers. Next we were on top the Gower in South Wales, a highly competitive distance race was held across Swansea Bay (and many new faces from the Welsh SUP scene turned up to compete), then despite the dire forecast a nice clean 2ft wave turned up on Sunday at Llangennith beach for the surf contest. Finally on to Watergate Bay in October 2009. The waves were really fantastic and allowed the 27 competitors to show their stuff. On the sunday a 5km distance race was held in the head high, clean surf. Finally the points were added up the winners awarded the BSUPA trophies and the glory !

2008 Series Results

The first ever national Stand Up Paddle Championship series in the world, has now come to a close.

The British Stand Up Paddle Association (BSUPA) have run four events in Cornwall, Isle of Wight, South Coast and West Wales and now have national champions in distance and surf disciplines.

With a field of over forty competitors which included European surf champions, masters surf champions, national and world cup ranked windsurfers and kite surfers. Juniors from 6 years old and ladies.

The events were run in surf on a heat format where the top riders would be judged on surf performance with use of the paddle, each heat winners would progress through to the next round. The panel of judges would be looking for the highest scoring wave or maneuver combinations and riders would go out in heats of four with the top two progressing through. The distance was run on a first past the post and each event was slightly different in terms of course, each race generally lasted 25-30 minutes and tended to be a sprint from start to finish.

Simon Bassett (BSUPA Series Director) commented “at the beginning of this year we wrote the rules for this series which is a first of its kind and our aim was to find the British Champion who could perform the best in all conditions. The beauty of SUP riding is that if you do have a small wave, you can generally always ride it. We were hoping for bigger surf this year, but unfortunately this season it didn€™t coincide with our event schedule. I am convinced that results of some of the top four riders will be similar next season when we do get bigger surf. It was also great to see SUP riders who turned up to their first contest and really enjoyed the experience, to see the juniors committed to competing at these events. What we have leant about this year is the riders who have come to the BSUPA events have all made some good friends at the contests, and there is some really stoke at the events.”

Neal Gent commented “The one I really wanted to get was the surfing Champion for stand up paddling so I am really pleased, its been a really good year battling with John (Hibbard), I hope that next year the events will be bigger and we get better waves !”

John Hibbard added “its really good to be the first National Stand Up Paddle Distance racing champion in the UK, I think that at the start of the year nobody knew if this format would work, but it ended up being an extremely competitive discipline. Its great to do something where the result is black and white!€ 
