It’s that time of year again. The evenings are well and truly drawing in and after work surfs are pretty much a thing of the past until next year. This weekend the clocks go back, which can only mean one thing.. It’s time for our Warriors of Winter competition!
We’ve decided to make this one even bigger. Last year’s competition was only open to UK breaks, but this year we’re having two categories.. UK and Rest of Europe. We’ll also be doing spot prizes throughout the season.
We’re still deciding the prizes for this year, and we’ll keep everyone updated with news as it happens. If last year was anything to go by, you know the prizes will definitely be worth taking ridiculously big, icy cold drops for!
Our judges said it was very difficult to pick a winner, but in the end the top spot went to Pete Geall for this shot taken at the Cribbar, and his chosen prize was a custom 8’6 Jim Banks gun.
