The Welsh Surfing Federation is pleased to announce that this year’s Welsh National Surfing Championships will be co-sponsored by Rusty, FCS and Gorilla (through Holysport UK) and MiPost Mailing Solutions, Cardiff.
In a statement President Huw John said: “We’re delighted that following last year’s successful sponsorship deal that Rusty, FCS and Gorilla will again be supporting our Flagship Event along with MiPost who already sponsor Glamorgan Cricket Team. It’s fantastic that the WSF is able to attract sponsorship from MiPost who recognise the appeal of our sport to their business and the non surfing public. We would like to thank both Liam O’Shea (Holysport UK) and Ken Vaughan (Mipost) for their generosity and commitment to surfing in Wales.”
The Welsh Nationals is scheduled to take place over the bank holiday weekend of May 2nd, 3rd and 4th at the usual venue of Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire.
The contest is the most prestigious WSF event of the year, bringing together competitors of all ages to compete for one of 15 National Titles as well as places in the National Team to compete at European and World level.
Last year’s Open Champion James Jones (Gower) has shown good form in the early part of 2015 and will look to successfully defend his title from hotly tipped local surfers Alex Morris, Harry Cromwell and some of Wales best young surfers Max Payne, Rhys Poulton and Rhys Barfield.
Emily Williams could make history if she’s able to defend both her Women’s Open and U18 Girls titles for the third time in what will prove very tough competition.
The WSF would like to wish all our competitors and officials alike the very best of luck at the event and pass on thanks to the National Trust and Pembrokeshire Parks for allowing us to use Freshwater West once again.
