What an epic weekend the Swellboard Shoot Out has been! For those who have never heard of it, the Swellboard Shoot Out is St Ives Surf School‘s annual charity, fancy dress, surfing bonanza event supported by Rhythm Europe and Red Bull. Four-person teams slip, spin, slide and glide on the world famous 8ft yellow foamies, all the while, raising money for Surfers Against Sewage.
Fuelled with good vibes, this year’s event held on June 21, at Porthmeor beach, saw teams pulling better-than-ever costumes. Rock band Kiss took the best fancy dress title whilst nuns, cowboys, flowers, wizards, architects, and even a Jamaican bob-slay team showcased never-seen-before Swell-riding skills.
Team HUBBOX featuring Charlie Boon, Maria Petersson and Chris Ranford as the criminals and Tom Lowe as the truncheon-swinging bobby, made it to the semi-finals!
Watch the video and see for yourself, there is nothing quite like it out there. See you in the water next year!
Special thanks to St Ives Surf School for organising such a crazy-ass event!
