Haven’t done a blog post in a while as I’ve been pretty busy but going to try get back on the ball with it now!
A couple of of weeks ago I arrived back from the European Championships held in Santa Cruz, Portugal. I had an amazing trip with team wales and ended up finishing 19th overall with team wales finishing 8th position overall!
Of course, I felt like I could've gone further as you always do but I learnt so so much in this event which I hope I can take into future comps. Hanging out with the team and watching everyone making heats was a great feeling and one I won't forget!
Getting to watch all of the other heats and what scores were given for what rides really opened my eyes and I took so much away from the whole experience. It has really made me hungry to push my surfing to the next level as I want to be in contention for finals at events like these.
A big congratulations to Evan who took out 3rd place in the longboard! What a legend and absolute shredder, look forward to doing more contests and trips with this guy. And of course, Jay boy, who managed to win AGAIN! I learn so much from watching and surfing with Jay and he is a great target for me to aim my surfing towards. Well deserved win.
We got some awesome waves whilst we were in Portugal and I had some of the best sessions ever! Pretty much surfed myself out every single day and loved it all! A great place to be able to train and somewhere I would love to come back to in the future.
And finally, I want and need to say a massive thank you to my sponsors, team mates, surf club, the WSF and my family for all their support and making this trip possible. Hopefully I can do even better next time!!
Onwards and Upwards!
