North of the Boarder 2011

Last Saturday (21st May) at Crantock the National Trust presented North of the Boarder junior surf competition, the final stage of the Boarder series. The day started early with the optional beach littler pick, each competitor could add to their first head score by collecting bags of beach litter. 
"The litter pick has been integrated into the competition to raise awareness of beach and marine rubbish problems, this is an issue the Trust has to deal with on a daily basis so it's vital that the next generation of surfers are aware of the problem and play their part in protecting their playground" said Robyn Davies, National Trust Water Sports Co-ordinator and Boarder Series director. 

Heats for all four categories then got under way in challenging conditions as the large tide changed and the Gannel disappeared. Stand out performance of the day came from Peony Knight who took both the girls titles.
