Every competitor who we have spoken to about this weekend, organised by Spot On Water, has not stopped going on about how good it was! Force 4-5, sunny, a packed beach of ready made spectators, amateurs at their first event to seasoned pros all duck gybing and jumping over huge yellow bouys with the braver ones going for forwards.

If you can\'t do freestyle, not confident enough to compete in waves, scared of 20m sails and 4m wide boards then this could be the discipline for YOU!

In the end, Matt Pearch won the Pros and Adam Cropper won the amateurs but what really mattered is that this Super X event (the first in the UK) was the test run, the dummy, and it worked!! See you back down in Christchurch over the Bank Holiday Weekend for Round 2.
