South of the Boarder Junior surf comp returns
The National Trust’s South of the Boarder junior surf competition returns to Poldhu Cove for the second year running on Saturday 16th April. This is a surf event for the environmentally aware grom and is open to everyone whatever their ability as long as their 16 or under on the day of the event. With this event, the National Trust is promoting the importance of litter picking through new judging criteria.
Not only do groms gain points from surfing, but also by the amount of litter they pick beforehand. A maximum of two points will be available to any one surfer and one carrier bag of beach litter is worth one point.
Robyn Davies, watersports co-ordinator for the National Trust said: “It’s really great how the groms (young surfers) have supported this event and are taking responsibility for their coastline and playground by beach cleaning their local surf spots.”
Under 16 and Under 14 girls and boys can sign up to the competition at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/boarderseries.
