Adam Griffiths Crowned First Ever UK Pro Surf Flowriding Champ

Newquay-based professional longboarder and surf coach Adam Griffiths proved he has another string to his bow last night with a unique victory at the inaugural Professional Surfers Flowriding Championships at Retallack Resort & Spa.
Organized by the UKPSA and with the help of Retallack’s Flowrider® staff, the event required special new judging criteria with points awarded primarily for ‘entry’ to the flowrider, large carving manoeuvres, full use of the 12m wide ‘flow’, hands free spins and other tricks, and overall style.

Adam was one of the standouts from the opening round which saw the likes of Ben Skinner, Sam Lamiroy, Joss Ash, Reubyn Ash, Danny Wells, and Lee Bartlett testing their skills on the artificial wave. Representing the women, Swiss champion Celine Gehret made it through to second round and there were impressive performances from many of the younger riders, in particular 13-year old Rhys Barfield who went up against Ben Skinner in the quarter finals.
