So stoked to win the Iksurfmag Wave Classic (Seniors - over 35) and the third year in a row for me, it was pretty tough this year in very light wind conditions.
I used a 13m and a fish ffs!!

Next year it would be cool to see some more from Wales attend it though!!

Congratulations Marc Smile

great result [especially at your age] Smile

I know there were issues with funding/sponsorship for the event, but it wasn't very well advertised that the event was going ahead. Maybe next year if people know that its on, maybe more people will attend. However, i'm aware that being a kitesurfing event that its dependant on wind conditions and therefore needs to be flexible on dates. I'm up for next year Smile do they have a 'senior newbie' class???

The approx. dates were posted at the start of the year on the BKSA website, the problem was the total lack of updates or any communication leading up to the event and eventually Iksurfmag stepping in with only 10 days to go. . . . And they did a way better job than previous BKSA comps, the entry was a third less, everyone got a goody bag, inc. t.shirt etc and there were decent prices for all categories. I won £100 a £65 board bag plus a bag full of things like peak cap etc

I've never won $ before and had pretty useless prizes tbh.
I think we may see some big changes taking place regards the BKSA in the coming year.

Next year mate

Not much actual action sorry as I was competing and only able to get some video early in the mornings before most were set up on the beach etc but it hopefully gives an insight to the vibe and location.
