Jake Patterson of Gul comments “the weekends surfing talent was excellent and when you see these youngsters competing you have to look twice to comprehend what you are seeing. It is so hard to believe how outstanding these young boys and girls are at such young age. It very encouraging to see the future of British surfing, at such a high level that was seen at the Gul Night Surf. We may all have witnessed the future Men’s and Women’s world champion this weekend!”
