2 Welshmen fly to California to represent Britain in the ISA World Games

The Welsh Surfing Federation would like to congratulate Patrick Langdon-Dark and Logan Nicol on their selection to compete for Team GB at the ISA World Surfing Games, starting 16th September at Huntington Beach, California. The dynamic duo ensure that Welsh national surfers occupy two out of the six available places in the British Team who will be competing for the ultimate prize of Olympic Qualification.  

The WSF wishes Pat, Logan and the rest of the team every success at the event. In addition to the selection of our two young rippers, it's really exciting that the WSF’s own Gwen Spurlock has been appointed to the role of British Surfing’s Pathway Development Lead, and will join the team in California as Deputy Team Manager. Congratulations to the three of you!

The WSF have received the following official announcement from British Surfing to share:
 
British Surfing are pleased to announce the team that will compete in the upcoming ISA World Surfing Games. The ISA World Surfing Games will take place from the 16-24th September at Huntington Beach, California. This event represents the start of the qualification process for the 2024 Olympics.
 
This event is also the first following British Surfing’s appointment of Victoria Gosling OBE as the new British Surfing Chair; Joel Gray as Performance Pathway Manager; and Gwen Spurlock as Pathway Development Lead. 
 
“This is a real positive step for British Surfing and the fact that the funding and positions are long term focussed is like a breath of fresh air. Personally Im really excited to get to work. These ISA Games are just the starting point and we hope to put in place a healthy pathway for emerging groms to aspire to with healthy numbers competing on the WSL and of course WT and Olympic Qualification as realistic goals.” Joel Gray 
 
“With the Paris 2024 Olympics approaching, and surfing as a sport now being recognised and supported, I personally feel extremely excited about the future for our athletes. I am driven by creating the platform that supports our surfers to achieve an Olympic medal in the not-so-distant future.” Gwen Spurlock. 
 
Future Squad and Team Selection Policy will be announced shortly; furthermore we will provide information on upcoming Squad Development Camps planned to take in the UK and overseas.

WCSC Grom Festival 2022 a success!

The Welsh Coast Surf Club hosted their annual Grom Festival at Rest Bay, Porthcawl today. On what was one of the sunniest, busiest beach days of the year so far, the club managed to run the event to completion. 

The waves were small, but the water warm and the stoke level dialled to maximum!

The groms battled it out in the following categories:

U10, U12B, U12G, U14B, U14G, U16G & U18B (B = boys, G = Girls)

The feedback has been amazing from the competitors!

Fun day comps like this is where so many grass-roots surfers begin, and we would like to thank all of the sponsors of the event for helping WCSC put on such an amazing contest.

Keep an eye on our events calendar where we will keep you updated on everything that is going on.

 

Well done WCSC!

Surf Snowdonia are hosting for the second time the Welsh Adaptive Surfing Championships.

This year is going to be better than ever following two summers of lockdowns and restrictions – in short, the waves are rolling, the surfers are preparing and the stoke levels are at an all-time high.

Good luck to all the competitors!
