This weekend’s Sliding for Stephen event looks set to become an annual feature on the calendar. Despite grotty weather, Saturday’s event raised £180 for the Sea Pool and all had a fun day in memory of Stephen Rosser, who loved the sea pool and worked tirelessly for it.
For those fancying it next year, it works like this:
Also known as the Flexbury and District Half Boarding Championship, boarders take to the ocean in vintage style, meaning boards made of wood, and no wetsuits – more old-style cossies.
Stephen Rosser attended the first Half Boarding Champs in 2017. He absolutely loved being in the sea in his beloved Bude, so this was/is in his memory.
