St Ives Open Cancelled for 2009
Event 4 on the UK Pro Surf Tour 2009, the St Ives Open, has been cancelled. Scheduled to take place on the weekend of 4th 5th September at Porthmeor Beach, St Ives. The event clashed with a local charity event who also wanting to use the same beach. In addition it clashed with the Billabong British Juniors being held at Fistral Beach.
Alternative dates were looked at and alternative sponsorship sort, but in the present economic climate and the hectic schedule of surf events this time of year the decision had to be made to cancel.
It is with great disappointment that the event is cancelled, it must also be disappointing to the surfers and spectators who were planning to attend. After two very successful events on previous years this annual event will now come to an end.
The UK Pro Surf Tour will now move onto the next event; the Elusive Welsh Open scheduled to be held at Rest Bay Porthcawl on 10th 11th October.
