the welsh

the Welsh Championships were held last weeked at freshwater west in pembroke, we got down to freshwest around 8:00am on the saturday, it’s a 1:30 hour drive so i had to wake up at 6:00am! the waves were really small on saturday morning but picked up to a solid 3foot by the afternoon, and the sun was out!

The under 12s were first up and i was in the first heat so I had no time to relax. the surf was small and windy but i caught a couple and got through which settled my nerves. the rest of the under 12s heats went well and i made the final that was held on the sunday. the waves for the final were difficult and i stayed on the inside to get my wave count up, i got a few good ones and was stoked come away with 1st! ny first Welsh title and i’ll never forget it.

i also entered the under 14s and was really happy to get to the final with Max Payne and my two mates Owen and Tyler. i got two good waves and came 2nd which was a great achievement.

it was great weekend to hang out with all the groms and to meet Spencer Hargreaves, thanks to Quiksilver and all the organisers for running the event!
