Ollie Shilston – Watergate Bay

Ollie Shilston – Surftech Team Rider at the BSUPA National Championships – Watergate Bay.

Saturday saw some pretty tough conditions with some big onshore surf and strong winds. I was pleased to get through some tricky heats of the surf event where I ended up getting joint 5th overall.

Sunday morning conditions were quite the opposite from Saturday with medium sized waves and light offshores. The BOP consisted of a long two lap course in and out through the surf. Leading on the way in after the first lap I was unlucky to get caught by a set wave that broke just behind me causing me to get knocked off. Unfortunately for me, my other competitors caught that wave into the beach. Going back out through the surf on lap two I managed to close the gap and get up to third where I finished.
