Most of you will have been watching the regular Facebook posts from Phil Williams of Christian Surfers who volunteered to be the England Team Manager and who did an outstanding job of keeping us all informed on the teams progress.
The British Longboard Union is proud to have been involved with the team members over the years and sends congratulations and a big thank you to our Team England Longboard surfers, the volunteers, the supporters and the sponsors.

We’ve witnessed inspiring and professional performances at the 2018 International Surfing Association World Longboard Championships in China and we are so proud - All leading to a 5th place team finish, 5th for Ben Howey, 7th for Ben Skinner, 9th for Emily Currie and 25th for Jen Pendlebury. All results for our growing history books. We look forward to building from this amazing result and challenging for the medals in the years ahead.

The performances are also testament to the years of work by the British Longboard Union, with its platform for nurturing, supporting and developing longboarding - we invite any longboarders or anyone inspired to give it a go to get in touch with them, join the community and become a member.

Safe travels to the team and we hope they enjoy their final days in China.
