Spectacular spring sunshine showed up for Newquay’s Bodyboard-Depot/Science free demo day on Saturday along with an eager crowd of over 25 bodyboarding enthusiast who travelled from all over the UK to attend.
In partnership with Science bodyboards and Rob Barber’s Bodyboarding school, The Bodyboard-Depot hosted a free event for keen bodyboarders to come and try out a selection of new Science bodyboards to enable them to improve their riding and techniques. By 2pm 28 new boards had been unwrapped and distributed to the amassed riders and invaluable advice was delivered from pro Science riders Bjorn Storey, Sam Brabyn, Laurie McCall, 6 times British champion Damian Prisk and British team coach Rob Barber.
Fistral Beach provided two-foot clean waves as well as the beaming sunshine and warm waters in which bodyboarders trialed the new Science boards. After the surf session the riders headed back to the Bodyboard-Depot shop where they looked over video footage of their wave riding and received further feedback and guidance from the experts.
Thrilled with the chance to try the new Science boards and after receiving some guidance from the Pro’s, local bodyboarder Tyler Littlejohns commented
“It’s been a great day and it gives you the chance to meet the pro’s and ask questions about certain moves. It’s awesome that the Bodyboard-Depot and Science have organised a day like this”.
Rob Barber commented,
“The Science boards are great, they have such confidence in their product that they want people to be able to try them and feel how good they are. It was a great day with perfect weather, great waves and it’s exactly the type of event that the Bodyboard-Depot is trying to build to promote bodyboarding”.
