Elusive contest

Janine, Ester Spears and I made the relatively short Journey to South Wales over the weekend.
I competed in my sponser's contest, The Elusive Welsh Open.

As forecasted swell conditions were tiny and the decision was made prior to Saturday that they would complete the contest on that day as it would gradually die of flatness syndrome!

All in all it was a successful contest and I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to Nick at Elusive for organising another Rad event.

Unfortunately I just missed out on a podium spot and finished 3rd in my semfinal heat. Conditions were really against all competitors involved apart from the groms!

My congratulations go to Mike Young who took out the open Men's final in the testing conditions.
I'm proper jealous as he won a trip for 2 to Portugal!

Hopefully I can improve my result for the next comp and also for the Elusive Welsh Open 2013!

Catch ya soon!

I bet anyone that looks on my page thought I gave up the old blogging malarky. That's not the case, I just had a long winter out of action due to injury, so for that reason and the surf being generally poor made no news for me!All is grand now though, I've been back in action nearly 3 weeks now and I couldn't be more stoked.Being out for that long really made me appreciate what I do on a daily basis, SURF!

Also, the fact that I have been extremely slack with updates is also the reason.Now its easter, the sun is out more and the waves were pumping last week I thought I should get a crack on.

The contest season is upon those who compete like myself are gearing up for it all. I have made a few dates of upcoming contests in my diary so I will keep you informed on where I am in the UK and how I get on. The first event of the year is being organised by my sponsor Elusive, the event will be held at Porthcawl beach in south Wales in 2 weeks time. So I will keep you informed on what goes down.

I picked up my first pair of surfplugs the other day, apparently the time was right for me to get plugs as my ears were lets just say a little clogged inside!
