Ticket to Ride InterSchools Championships 2016

The second Independent Schools Surf Championships took place in Perranporth, Cornwall this weekend in perfect surfing conditions, with over 40 competitors battling it out amongst the 3-5 foot and clean waves.

Hosted by surf travel company Ticket to Ride, led by former British Champion Sam Lamiroy, accompanied by top female surf Georgia Timson and the Ticket to Ride team, the 4 day event took a unique format creating more of an educational surf festival atmosphere than a cut-throat competition vibe.

There was a combination of surf coaching sessions, where each pupil was iAM band assessed and given their band colour to mark their ability to provide a handicapping platform for the β€œLeveller” surf competition, combined with evening presentations and discussions with industry stalwarts and a board surf lifesaving relay.
