Skinner's Longboard Invitational comes to Fistral - 4pm Thursday 5th August
Relentless Boardmasters in Association with Vans is going back to its roots, where it all began in the days when retro was... well, new school and hanging ten was the equivalent of a rodeo flip.
The Skinner's Longboard Invitational will be hitting the shores of Fistral Beach on Thursday 5th August and will showcase some of the best longboarding talent in the UK; 8 of the best longboarders in the country will be invited to compete in the 'winner take all' format which is sure to be one of the highlights of this year's RBM.
Relentless surfer Ben 'Skindog' Skinner will definitely be one to watch in this competition; he is renowned for ripping on anything that floats and has some serious skills on boards over 9 foot long!
The Relentless Aerial Assault has been inspired by the Relentless Tow-Team of 4 Relentless surfers Ben Grenata, Ben Skinner, Tom Lowe & Fergal Smith who are revolutionising British surfing by seeking out big wave surf spots across the UK and pulling into waves in excess of 30ft! Don't expect to see any big wave surfing at Fistral but you will see the discipline of tow-surfing demonstrated with a twist!
The competition will run on Friday 6th August and the format for the event is as follows:
