The Scottish Surfing Federation in conjunction with The Broch Surf Club were delighted to host the Scottish Junior Surfing National Championships at Fraserburgh beach Saturday 8th October.
Fraserburgh welcomed surfers from all over the country to compete for National titles, points in the SSF junior series and potential selection for the Scottish National team for future international events.
An early start, the event kicked off with small but fun contestable conditions on the lower tide which improved all day with the pushing tide.
Sun was out and the promenade was buzzing with energetic competitors, parents and spectators supporting the event, there was a real feel good vibe and atmosphere.
As the tide turned the swell began to drop which made for challenging albeit fully contestable conditions for the finals.
Weather and swell forecast was poor for the Sunday and a decision was made by the club to run the event in the single day. A dual podium and a total of 40 x 15 minute heats throughout the day allowed the event completion just as the sun went down.
A long day and monumental effort by all involved to successfully complete the event within the window of a single day.
The prizegiving was set out under moonlight on the beach promenade where the successful competitors were rewarded for their efforts throughout the day and the Scottish National champions were crowned
Following the event prizegiving, the Broch Skate club kindly provided floodlit access to the new skatepark where the surf competitors and family’s enjoyed a friendly social gathering to unwind after what was a challenging day for all.
Results as follows:
Massive thanks to everyone who participated and supported the event and we hope all our visitors for the event enjoyed their time in Fraserburgh.
