Last weekend we headed down to the first (in a few years) ‘North Wales Open’ Surf Comp. The comp was held on the Sunday and there was a massive swell on the Saturday which had pretty much every spot on the North Wales coast firing. We heard of all time sessions at all the very fabled, and fickle spots and pretty special weekend to be a North Wales surfer.
(Picture right) The day before the comp saw some unusual spots come to life.
After the pretty epic conditions on the Saturday, the conditions really calmed down and a nice solid swell prevailed with pretty much perfect conditions at Porth Ceriad, near Abersoch. Various competitors from the juniors to the open all entered the water early morning and with the high tide after lunch the conditions just got better and better. Amazing performances from Ollie Laddiman, Osian Coyle, Miguel Barros, Llywelyn Williams, Urien Davies-Hughes, Rob Dodd, Llywelyn Williams, Noah Wood, Gwion Brown, Charlie Middleton…
Urien Davies-Hughes snagged some lovely little tubes and big turns to seal first place, and young local ripper Noah Wood grabbed the juniors.
We were super happy to sponsor the event with a load of recycled goodies as prizes.
Big thanks to Abersoch Watersports for having us and for organising the event, looking forward to next year now!
We came across Ollie on Instagram, and as soon as we saw he was an Anglesey based surfer we bagged him for sponsorship.
Ollie surfs all manner of crafts and makes the most of the often small and slack conditions Anglesey can offer, and takes his surfing to the next level. He currently travels around the UK entering as many comps as possible.
Amazing to have you on board Ollie!
