Female surfers in the water have grown rapidly over the last 5 years and the standard is out of this world. We are fortunate that we sponsor one of the UK’s best surfing stars Beth Mason, she is a very powerful surfer and a great ambassador for Gul and female surfing. This year Gul team Ambassador Celine Gerhert will also be competing and we see the debut year of the current university champion and Gul Ambassador Amy Brock-Morgan on the UK Pro Surf Tour. We are very excited to have this strong female team competing on the prestigious tour.”The Groms will start on the Sunday and it is going to be a very exciting showdown. The future British talent will battle it out for the title of the most exciting European surf event this year. With strong competition from young male and female competitors it is set to be a memorable event. “The standard of our young British surfers is higher than it’s ever been and the manoeuvres that some of these youngsters are doing are making the older more experienced surfers eye’s water! With talent like this and the continued growth of surfing there will be more world class Brits over the next 10 years than we can imagine. At Gul we have always been on the look out for the best new talent to help progress and nurture there skill, and supply them with top quality product. This year we are looking for new groms to sponsor and I am hopeful that we can sign some new talent over the Night Surf weekend” For further information please contact Dave Reed on 01637 854854 or, also visit the website Or Jake Patterson Gul International
