Cornish surfers put up brave fight at Oxbow Classic
Despite poor surfing conditions, there were still some jaw dropping surfing.
Two of Cornwall's finest longboarders were missing from the line-up; Newquay's Ben Skinner and Sennen's Sam Bleakley, who were both taking part in the European Championships in France. In the interests of representing his country abroad, Ben had to pull-out of a chance to retain his title.
But two Cornish surfers James Parry from Sennen and Nic Keruzec from Perranporth both made a bid for the top spot with some impressive surfing. In the end, however, kiwi star Phil Morris was triumphant.
In the womens' longboard division, Ben's sister, Sophie Skinner came in fourth.
