What: Current European, Welsh and British Longboarding Champion Elliot Dudley to attend longboard surf workshops in Newquay and Polzeath

Where: Sat 22nd Sept – ASA Polzeath beach, Sun 23rd Sept – ASA Newquay (Tolcarne Beach)

When: Saturday 22 September & Sunday 23 September

For the first time this year the Animal Surf Academy in Cornwall will be holding an ASA Longboard Weekend on 22nd and 23rd September in Newquay and Polzeath. Two-time European champ Elliot will be on-hand to help participants tweak their style – from nose-riding tips to cross stepping or walking the board. The day will also include a chance to try out different styles of longboards to help find which one best suits you, an Animal goodie bag, beach picnic and a discussion session where you can chat and discuss style tips with Elliot.

An extra highlight will be a stand-up paddle surfing demo with Starboard UK, a new craze currently sweeping the UK coastline. Everyone on the ASA Longboard Day will be able to find out more about one of the original forms of surfing dating back to the Polynesian forefathers who first took to the waves and were documented by Captain Cook in the Eighteenth Century. There will also be an opportunity for surfers to try out the boards on the day.
