Gaastra vs Simmer

The BWA announce the results for the 2013 UK Wave Constructors Championship:

2013 saw record-breaking attendance and some of the most challenging conditions ever seen on the BWA UK Wave Tour. The race to win the Constructors Championship was fiercely fought between the brands. With the 2012 Champion, Jamie Hancock, out of the running, brand leader Ross Williams stepped up to defend the Constructors title. But with Proffitt, Sniady and Neal challenging, it went right down to a ferocious battle in Cornwall to decide the winners.
