National Freestyle Championships 11/12 September 2010

7 September 2010

The coming weekend sees the UK Freestyle Tours final and premier event at the Animal Poole Windfest on Sandbanks Seafront.

On the tour this year we have been watching the development of some fine up and coming freestyle talent like Adam Simms, Will Rogers, Al Bentley and the impressive 14 year old, Oscar Carmichael.

Now comes their long awaited chance to take on the established names like Andy "Bubble" Chambers, Max Rowe, Colin "Whippy Dixon" and Ollie Scott who have just returned from their summer training in Vass.

With the wind forecast looking pretty good for both Saturday and Sunday the action on the water should be fast and furious, the stars will no doubt also be out on Friday tuning their kit and practicing their moves ready for the weekend contest.

Competitors Registration for all fleets will be at the Windfest Event Site with Hugo Lewis from 9.00 am until 10.00 am on Saturday, anyone who has pre entered needs to bring along their completed entry form.

Please do not be late as we will be closing registration promptly in order to get competition under way as soon as possible. If you are unavoidably delayed telephone me on 07764-578648 before 10 am and I will try to include you but cannot guarantee it.

Don't forget that all entrants receive one free ticket to the Saturday night party, if you would like extra tickets you need to pay for them at registration and we will organize them for you, as usual they will be as rare as hens teeth so get your order in early.

Our Head Judge is the legendary PWA Head Judge Duncan Coombes and depending on wind direction and conditions the competition will be held off Sandbanks beach or in the harbour.

Animal are as always the major sponsor of the event and will be generously providing cash prizes for the pro's and product prizes for all other fleets.
