North of the Boarder is a surfing event to raise the importance of looking after our coastline through the combination of surfing and litter picking. It’s the second event in the Cornish National Trust Boarder series.
It takes place at Crantock Beach, Cornwall, on Saturday 15 May 2010.

Check-in time: 8.30am
First heat starts: 9am
What it’s all about
- In your heat, you’re allowed to catch a maximum of 10 waves. Your top two scoring waves will be added together for your final score. The two surfers who score highest in the heat will progress through to the next round.
- There’s an option to gain points before your first heat starts by picking up beach litter and handing it into contest control. A maximum of 2 points will be available to any one surfer. One carrier bag of beach litter is worth 1 point.
- Litter picking points will be added to the surfing points to determine who progresses through to the next round.
- The litter picking points gained before your first heat will be carried through with you heat-on-heat up to, but not including, the semi-finals. (Say you’ve collected two bags of beach litter before your first heat, you’ll have gained the advantage of 2 points being added to each of your heat scores for every heat you progress into up until, but not including, the semi-finals. Here the scoring will be done on surfing prowess alone).
