UKWA Four Nations Cup Round 1 comes to a succesful end

The 4 day competition saw a real mix of conditions on the shores of Brandon Bay on the west coast of Ireland. Jamie Knox Watersports were the hosts and once again put on a great organised event. Never missing a chance of wind, which on one day meant dragging the sailors out of bed at 7am to go and search for good conditions. A massive thank you goes to Jamie Knox, Jeremy, Sam as well as Dan and Brian for all their help and support during the week.

Tow Surf Action in Brandon Bay as the wind falls light.....

Jamie and John with the board.Day 4 over here in Brandon Bay dawned cloudless and windless with very little hope of any competition. Luckily for the competitors they are very rarely stuck for something to do here in the action sports capital of Ireland. While the majority of competitors hit the water for a surf Ben Proffitt hit the greens!

UKWA Four Nations Cup Day 2 and 3

Day 2 saw sun and surf but no wind at the Four Nations Cup in Brandon bay. However a Wacky Races type pursuit was instigated in order to get over to Inch reef to surf the perfect waves that were peeling off the reef there. Apart from that, no on water action happened on Day 2 but with a very promising forecast for Day 3 everything was set for another day on the water.
