Bodyboard-Depot Wedge Air Show Rescheduled to the 21st-22nd July
The stunning crescent shaped bay of Newquay’s Tolcarne beach is home to one of the best UK beach breaks and the Bodyboard-Depot Wedge Air Show. The radical competition will take place on the 21-22nd July 2012, a fun day for everyone looking to be visually entertained by some awesome bodyboarding action.
Like most UK sporting events this year, the weather also affected the Wedge Air Show which was originally planned to take place in early July, however the swell failed to arrive to provide the competitors with the waves needed to create a spectacular event and consequently the organisers were forced to postpone and reschedule.
Now reorganised for the 21-22 July, The Bodyboard-Depot Wedge Air show is the platform for british bodyboarding’s finest competitors, who will once again showcase an array of acrobatically amazing aerial manoeuvres, to delight the beach crowds and impress the judges.
As well as Newquay shop; The Bodyboard-Depot, the event is also co-sponsored by Turbo Bodyboards who are supplying bodyboards as prizes for the category winners of the Open, Women and Drop Knee division.
Most recently Freedom Swim fins have committed their support to the Wedge competition by sponsoring the highest scoring wave and most inspirational performance in the event. ThreeSixty Bodyboarding Magazine will be sponsoring the best move of the event with a further prize.
Rob Barber, Director of the Bodyboard-Depot commented “Tolcarne is an exceptional break which provides waves that enable the bodyboarders to launch off wedging peaks to produce big moves. Following on from last year’s display the competitors will have been working hard perfecting moves and increasing their fitness and agility, as they aim to take the prestigious title and the points towards the British Bodyboard Tour title. The late July swell has traditionally been consistent for the event. Last year Jack Johns won the event and this year the battle of the Wedge Air show title will be more hotly contested than ever”.
