Newquay the Cribbar SUP Nick Healey

The Cribbar, just off the headland in Newquay UK, used to be a wave that a few of the surfers in the UK had a gun put away for one of the big days, but trying to find the perfect day when the wind and swell came together was something of an arcane art.  There was also an underlying attitutde in the UK that somehow big waves were not surfed anywhere other than Hawaii.  With the emergence Mavericks confirming that big wave surfing in cold waves was more that possible the light went on in the minds of a small group of UK watermen.

The 2011 BSUPA National championships were held at the usual venue of Watergate Bay in Cornwall. This year the forecast was looking good at 2-3 foot on Saturday with light offshore winds and Sunday a increasing swell 3-5 feet with a better period. When we got there Saturday morning we weren't disappointed –the sun was out the the swell had arrived were set for a great weekend of paddle surfing.

50 competitors were divided up into heats of 4 or 5 and each had 15 minutes to cut some shapes on the wave face. A panel of 3 judges would then score each wave ridden the best two wave scores added to get maximum points.

windfest-2011-ro

The weather forecast claimed there would be gales and storms were on the way, so it was looking like it could be a windy weekend, great for windsurfing and kitesurfing, but what about SUP?

Saturday morning, dark skies and winds from the South West would make it an interesting paddle but by circumnavigating Brownsea Island in an anti-clockwise, which would give shelter from the wind for part of course, the BSUPA Round Brownsea Island race was on.
