Sunshine and superheroes help make A1Surf Retro Board Challenge a huge success

Sunday 19th October saw hundreds of surfers descend on East Wittering for the A1Surf Retro Board Challenge, held in conjunction with Wittering Surf Shop.

 

 

Around 50 competitors from across the South Coast and further afield, battled it out on the waves, which were at first on the small side, but by the latter stages the surf was a contestable couple of feet.

 

Hundreds of spectators watched the likes of Spiderman, King Neptune and Bridesmaid surf on some classic retro boards to try and progress through to the final.

 

South African Jonathan Tuck, dressed as Batman, walked away with the first prize, a fantastic Black & White Fish that was shaped by Paul Walters on the beach and signed by all of the competitors. Jonathan�s victory was sweeter as he had only been in the UK for three weeks and entered after seeing the details on A1Surf.com.

 

David Somerville from A1Surf said: �The day was a huge success. It was great to see so many people there, whether to compete or simply to watch the fun.

 

�The feedback we have had from those taking part, plus the suppliers who exhibited to on the day has been fantastic.

 

Proceeds from the competition entry and the prize raffle day raised over 500 for the local Selsey RNLI lifeboat station.
