‘We have regretfully taken the decision to postpone the North of the Border Junior Surf Competition due to take place at Crantock due to a lack of surf. We have been following the surf reports closely this week and were hopeful of conditions improving, sadly this has not happened. We have a number of entrants travelling some distance so thought it would be fairer to make this decision now to avoid further disappointment. The surf competition will now take place on Saturday 21st of May.’

About

We protect over 360 miles of coast in Cornwall and Devon and it costs us £50,000 a year to clear the beaches of rubbish…if you stacked all the full skips on top of each other they would be higher than the Statue of Liberty. It is essential to hand pick the litter so as to keep the natural habitats intact. Plastics which make their way into the ocean become potentially fatal for sea birds and marine wildlife, whales have been found starved to death because the amount of plastics in their stomachs made them feel full. And so with this event the National Trust is promoting the importance of litter picking through new judging criteria…read on to make a difference…

Scoring

The scoring system will be the same as Surfing GB’s score system:

In your heat you are 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 the highest in the heat will progress through to the next round.

There is an option to gain points before your first heat starts by picking up beach litter and handing it into contest control.
A maximum of two points will be available to any one surfer.
One carrier bag of beach litter is worth one 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 go towards your first heat score total. (ie. If you have collected two bags of beach litter before your first heat you will have gained the advantage of two points being added to your first heat score).
