Extreme Academy English National Surfing Championships 2011
The 2011 Extreme Academy English National Surfing Championships will run at Watergate Bay from the 30th April to the 2nd May. This one-day event will see surfers from all over England, as well as our local talented bunch battle it out for the National Titles
Surfers will contest in three divisions; Open, Ladies and Longboard, and organisers will choose the best day of the 3 over the weekend to hold the competition. The contest will form the basis on which the selection will be made for the English surfing team to compete in the European Surfing Championships in Ireland in September.
Jayce Robinson (Open), Ben Skinner (Longboard) and Sarah Beardmore (Ladies) will be defending their 2010 titles at Watergate Bay. St Ives surfer Jayce Robinson became one of the youngest ever English champions, aged just 20.
Our surfing holidays
If you want to experience the best waves, in beautiful locations every day you should come on our amazing surf trips! We travel to the best locations at the optimum times of year on our surfing holidays to SW France and South Africa. On our France surf holiday we travel to Seignosse, SW France. Our surf camp rests under tall pines and we spend our days surfing the best beach breaks along this amazing coast. There are miles of white sandy beaches to sunbathe and surf. It really is a surfers paradise!
On our South Africa surf holiday to Jeffrey’s Bay we surf the legendary point breaks of Jeffrey’s Bay. We stay in a stunning guest house with direct access to the beach overlooking the waves. The surf is so good here they made a film about it – twice! See the Endless Summer films for all the amazing footage of surfing in South Africa. It really is the surf trip of a lifetime.
