The Smart Parking Night Surf Resounding Success

 

The infamous Smart Parking Night Surf Event and second stop on the UK Surf Tour took place at Fistral Beach on the 16th-17th June. The competition was greeted by rolling 3-5ft waves and blazing sunshine for the both days, revellers and surfers alike basked in the glorious conditions.

 

The Night Surf is one of the few night time surf events around the globe and sees the UKs top surfers battle it out under light up shores. With nothing but ocean light up each surfer battles it out in floodlit arena to be championed champion of the Smart Parking Night Surf.

 

Day one of the competition saw crowds gather at Fistral Beach the preliminary rounds of the Fistral beach U18s Boys, U18 Girls, Mens Open and the Stable Women’s Open. The level of surfing continued to be of an extremely high, with notable performances from Ellie Turner in the female divisions and Jay Quinn from the Mens open.

 

Day two saw the semi-finals and finals take place with tenacious surfing from the competing surfers, each surfer fought tooth and nail for their desired scores but for some that wasnt enough. Semi final heat with Reubyn Ash, Russell Winter, Jay Quinn and Miles Lee Hargraves was arguably the most exciting of the whole competition as Jay and Rueben went head to head, wave to wave trying to out surf one other, big turns and an impressive aerial favoured dominated this heat.

 

We were blessed with scorching sun through the finals with not a single cloud in the sky, the shoreline and Fistral Beach Bar was near capacity with people, all watching the surfing and enjoying Korev Lager. As the sun set an orange glow covered the horizon, the anticipation filled the air and finally the finals headed into the water.

 

Once the competition came to a close it was time for the presentation where the champions were crowned, fresh out of the water. After a few congratulatory speeches and thank you to our sponsors Smart Parking, Fistral Beach, Fistral Beach Bar, The Stable, Fistral, Korev Lager and The Surfing Sumo the delightful display of pyrotechnics took place. As the nights sky was painted a variety of colours from the fireworks it was hard to not see this event as a complete success.

 

We want to extend a huge thank you to the sponsors of this event, without whom this wouldnt be possible.
