Surfing Lessons at Shanklin
A huge thanks from all who participated to Cathy Budden and the West Wight Landscape Partnership for organising and putting on surfing lessons with ISurf and Chris Mannion.
With the strong wind and swell Chris had decided that the best and safest place to surf on the Saturday afternoon was at Small Hope Beach in Shanklin. Chris initially takes them through the basics on the sand before they all enter the water and it wasn’t long before there were hoots and high fives with huge smiles all round.

Grange Chine – Isle of Wight
This SAS beach clean is a great opportunity to take action and help our coastline. Grange Chine has a serious problem with marine litter and the clean will make a massive difference to this beach. All are welcome whether you surf or not, but the clean is part of the Motivocean Beach Clean Tour 2011 and any volunteers aged between 16 and 25 are eligilble for a free surf lesson as a reward for taking part. This will be in the form of vouchers given out on the day to redeem at a later date.
Gloves and bags are provided, but make sure you bring warm and waterproof clothing in case the weather is poor.
We will meet at the bottom of Grange Chine at 10am.

IOW Surf Club – Frost Bite Series Event No 2
Event No 2 press release from the Isle of Wight Surf Club
(Thanks to Matt Harwood, Oliver Harvey and Dave Smart for the write up)
The November event held last weekend (Sat 13th) Doug Richards showed his true talent by overcoming a competitive field of talent to take the win in very testing, weak two foot surf at Compton.
Against tough competition Doug surfed well through all rounds to book a berth in the final along side the ever-stylish Joe Truman, competitive Matt Harwood and Chris Mannion who has just returned from training in Australia.
Matt Harwood and Joe Truman opted for a strategy of catching inside waves and trying to build scores from medium size waves, but it was the patience of Chris and Doug who waited for bigger set waves out back who caught bigger waves that allowed room for faster moves and bigger turns. Finally, Doug edged out Chris to take the win with Matt coming third and Joe fourth.
The weekend was topped off by Alan Reed stylishly dominating and winning the first Longboard event and in the Junior Division Robin Forrest just edging out Henry Holmes(2nd) and Dylan Hamlet (3rd) to win. All three surfers showing great progression and skill.
