Big congrats to Bude surfer, Emily Currie.
After competing there for ten years, she made it to become Longboard Open Women’s Champion 2021 this year at Boardmasters. It’s not just about the music! The Boardmasters Open saw the best pro surfers go head to head in the UK’s biggest surf competition.
Over the years, they have had the biggest names in surfing competing at Boardmasters, including the eleven times world champion, Kelly Slater – who never managed to win. That’s how tough it is! Bude’s Ellie Turner also came 3rd in the Animal (Open) Women’s Final, while Beth Leighfield came 4th in the Longboard Open Women’s. In the Mystic Junior Open, the talented Stan Norman also came in at first place. Such talented youngsters in bude.
Apparently, conditions at Newquay were pretty tough at times, so that makes Emily’s victory all the sweeter.
The photos say it all … well done to all Bude surfers who competed.
