Surf Jam 2005

After the huge success of Surfjam this weekend at Boscombe beach, Lindsell Custom Boards would like to thank everyone that competed and everyone who helped behind the scenes to make the day such a success. With the weather being glorious nature had to balance itself out so as a result there was no surf at all – not to be put off there was a junior paddle competition and an adult paddle open which saw enthusiastic competitors paddle around the pier and race across the beach to be crowned winner. Congratulations to Harry Ovington for the juniors who took away a brand new wetsuit courtesy of Sorted and to Paul Watts for the adults who is the proud owner of an L C Boards Twin Fin Retro.

To the soundtrack of DJ James Chitty live on the decks, the half pipe came alive with both skaters and BMX riders warming it up and wearing it in. The 6’ ramp was made by the staff at LC Boards thanks to a generous contribution of wood from Travis Perkins. The BMX event, compeered by Gary Meason, kicked off with a BMX freestyle event, first prize going to Phil Aller who impressed the crowd and terrified the organizers with his tail tap off the top rail followed by a couple of 540 tail whips. Phil also pulled out the big guns for the BMX big air comp which won him a brand new BMX courtesy of Alan at On Yer Bike. Shouts also go out to Mark Newton and Oliver Noscoe who took 2nd and 3rd in the BMX comp demonstrating an awesome standard of riding.
The skaters didn’t disappoint, they owned the ramp and showed off all the tricks in the book at this mellowpark. Prizes were provided by The Poole Skate Shop and went out to Peter Lincoln, Reece Luke, Paul Kelly and Ross Surname - all of whom set a high standard for skate comps to come! The game of s.k.a.t.e was conveniently located in front of the pub so was enthusiastically spectated by many!

After the excitement of the day we all eagerly anticipated the after show party which saw the launch of the LCB clothing range, kindly modeled by the bar staff and employees of LCB. DJ James Chitty was back to scratch us into the mood, closely followed by the fantastic live band Decca Gives Chase. The Bournemouth three piece worked the crowd into a frenzy with their genius MCing and live drum and bass hooks. DJ Karl and the Consortium resident ended the night with a bang. All in all over 1,000 was raised for the three chosen charities of the Tsunami Appeal, RNLI and St John’s Ambulance. An excellent result for such a fun day.
