2015 Freestyle Championships – Full Report

We now have a full report from the UK Freestyle Championships from organisers, GetWindsurfing: 

On the 24th and 25th Of October Danielle Lucas and Phil Richards from GetWindsurfing ran the 2015 UKWA Freestyle Championships at the OTC in Weymouth and Portland Harbour.

With there only being 1 event for 2015 the title of British Freestyle Champion 2015 was to be decided over the weekend.

The forecast only predicted wind for the Saturday, so all the riders had an early start to register, rig and get on the water to make the most of the conditions.

Riders from all fleets made the most out of the difficult & gusty conditions performing a varied mixture of freestyle manoeuvres in the light winds. Often the heats were very close leaving some hard decisions for judges Danielle Lucas, Phil Richards & Nic Hibdige.

After a long and hard day of competition we managed to fit in an elimination for all, and so therefore get a result from the event giving us our UKWA Freestyle champions for 2015

A big well done and thank you to all competitors who attended the event

Congratulations to our champions for 2015

1st Pro – Adam Sims

1st Amateur – Kieren Roen

1st Youth – Lucas Meldrum

Over the weekend lots of UK champions have been decided and it was Adam Sims that took the British Freestyle Championship, just ahead of Max Rowe and Andy Bubble Chambers. There was only one freestyle event this year so it was all to play for at the National Championships last weekend, which took place in Weymouth and were organised by the GetWindsurfing team – Phil Richards and Danielle Lucas. It doesn’t sound like it was an easy ride for Sims but he made it just in the nick of time…

Wooooo! 2015 UK Freestyle Champ. Big respect to @maxrowek20 and @bubblek540 who didn’t make it easy for me. Conditions…
