Woody New, Year 9, has just become the British U14 surf champion. Woody claimed the title at the biggest surf competition of the year, the British Nationals at Perranporth beach, where surfers from ages 10 to 50+ competed in their age groups against all the best surfers from Britain.
Most of the Mounts Bay Academy surf team travelled up to the event for the weekend and they had some amazing results. Finley Gray-Williams surfed really well in his U14s heat but didn’t quite get the points to move on. Huck New did amazingly well to get through to the semi-finals and overall sixth in the U14 boys. In the U12 boys Thomas Reeves got to the final and finished third overall. Asha Sykes came second in the U12 girls final and in the U14 girls Bonnie Whitlock came second. Woody New won his final to become the British U14 boys champion.
It was a great event; all the students were impeccably behaved, and can now enjoy the winter free surfing and training for next year.
