Bude surfer do well at last round of BLU 4

Report on Yesterdays competition Round 4 of the BLU,Held at Gwithian.

The surf was less than a foot all day so made riding waves and scoring near impossible but tha
 did not stop JOLLY ROGER Bude team  riders from performing well.

 We will start with Lewis Stritch. He was drawn in the 1st round against Ben Skinner and GB

 rider Alex Madocks Not a nice draw for young Lewis but he worked hard paddling up and

down the beach to find waves this tactic work as he qualified for the next round . Now if you

 thought his 1st round was loaded then you should have seen his next round Current leader. last

 years champ and ex world series rider Guts Griffiths . needless to say lewis did not make the

 final. Lewis end of year ranking (needs to be confirmed) but I know it's in the top 10.

Steve Stritch Nothing quiet so glamorous came 4th in the final (Grand MasterDivision) But this

 did mean that Steve's Final ranking for the year is 4th in that division.

Emily (dad drive faster) Currie . Emily was in 3 competitions yesterday 2 at Gwithian and 1 in

 Newquay So Paul drove Emily back and two all day between heats and finals . I'm don't Know

 the details of the short board comp at Newquay other than in the Final she was 10 mins late but 

finished 3rd, whilst back at Gwithhin Emily made it through to the final of Under 18's girls and 

Open Ladies final. Emily won the under 18s Girls and came 3rd in the Open Ladies (which she

 arrived 5 mins late for). Final end of year position for Emily Open Ladies 4th. Under 18's Girls 

1st. So all in all a good day and season for the Bude longboarders.

 Next Competition is the 

Jesus Longboard at Polzeath on the 6th / 7th Oct . come along and support them.
