The Outer Reef Surf School is supporting the Women’s Open at the Headworx Welsh Open 2006 this weekend.
The latest event in the women’s surfing calendar is heading west this weekend for the Headworx Welsh Open – The Riders’ Choice, the fifth leg of the 2006 BPSA Tour.
Wales’ best beach break – Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire – will play host to the UK’s top surfers on 23rd and 24th September as they battle for the £3000 prize purse.
Located on one of the most remote and beautiful beaches in the country, the Freshwater wave is fast and hollow, breaking over reef and sand that picks up any swell available and works on all tides. The stunning scenery adds to the appeal for competitors and spectators.
The ladies standard is consistently rising with girls like Nicole Morgan, Gwen Spurlock, Beth Mason and Holly Donnelly all raising the bar on Women’s surfing in the UK.
“Its great to be returning to Pembrokeshire” explained Headworx’ marketing manager, Ben Byfield, “Fresh West certainly fits the bill for our annual ‘Riders Choice’ event. The tour surfers love the clean water conditions, beautiful scenery and remote location which really comes to life in September with superb swell conditions. It’s the perfect place for such a high profile contest.”
Elsewhere at the event, Foster’s will be bringing their mobile bar unit and barbeque to feed and ‘water’ the competitors and event staff. Tour sponsors Relentless will also be boosting energy levels with their energy drinks.
