The event was the 3rd event on this year's ISA Championship tour. Kieron who has battled back from a serious leg break placed 4th in the Senior Men's Final, and Iain finished 3rd in the Master's Division. Both guys surfed well in the small conditions and it is great to see our club's surfers making finals at a National level.CONGRATULATIONS!!

NWSC Mini Tour Ratings 2010


The 4th annual Wildstyle comp and the 3rd and final event on the NWSC Mini tour was run off in clean 2-3ft surf at Culdaff yesterday.

A large turnout of competitors and supporters where there to see some high quality surfing.

The day started out with running the 2 semi finals and Final of the'Clash of the Clubs' contest that had to be postponed in Portrush due to dropping swell cnditions.
The final was a tight affair with Rosy Harkin the NWSC's only surfer in the final.He was up against Jim Lenfesty and Oisin Cambell from the Causeway Club and tour leader Gearoid Mcdaid from Strandhill in Sligo.
However it was Jim Lenfesty and Gearoid Mcdaid who battled it out with the young ripper taking out Lenfesty with two solid big scoring waves.

After the final of the Clash Of The Clubs it was the Wildstyle comp that got underway, the 1st rounds were all a tightly fought affair with the youngsters making there mark again taking out the older competitors in the comp.

The final had 3 surfers under 18! Aaron Dees, Oisin Cambell and Gearoid Mcdaid with Portrush local Jim Lenfesty the only senior surfer making it to the final.
Oisin Cambell and Jim Lenfesty both started well scoring highly on there waves with Cambell pulling off a massive floater. Aaron Dees caught one or two nice lefts and carved some nice cutbacks while young Gearoid Mcdaid stayed over on the lefts getting a few nice ones too. But it wasn't till the final 2 minutes that Gearoid pulled the best wave of the day out of the bag, scoring 8.5 with two of the judges after demolishing the wave with 3 big of the lips and two full roundhouse cutbacks. The crowd went ballistic and the hooter sounded to finish off another great Wildstyle event.

The club would like to thank all the competitors who travelled to the comps from as far as Sligo and Belfast. We'd also like to thank Rosy SurfnSkate for there continuing support of the club and its events.
