The WSF is looking for help to send our senior team to Portugal for Eurosurf 2019

New stretch target

With the ISA World Surfing Games in Japan on the horizon the WSF will be sending a team to this event and will use any extra money to finance the travel expenses for this event.


We at the Welsh Surfing Federation are looking for help to send our senior team to Santa Cruz, Portugal, for Eurosurf 2019. Our team is not financially supported by anyone, we don't receive any government or lottery funding and we don't receive any financial backing from sponsorship. Our team has proved itself capable of competing on the international stage and is very deserving of the chance to do so again in Portugal.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of funding, the financial burden all too often falls on the surfers themselves and as is the case with the senior team this year and this financial burden can be very limiting in what we can achieve as a nation in the sport of surfing.

Our team consists of:

Open

Jay Quinn: former world junior champ, defending European Champion and current British and Welsh Champion, Jay's surfing is like watching an artist at work a smooth style with an explosive reportoire of maneovures and, despite his self-confessed 'aging' frame, not afraid to punt a serious air at a moments notice.
Logan Nichol: the young pretender to Jay. Equally as smooth in and out of the water. Logan's surfing is right up there and recent final placings in both the Welsh and British championships has seen his confidence soar and rightly so.
Rhys Barfield: a former Welsh champion himself Rhys is the work horse of the Welsh competitive scene. He never gives up and matches this tenacity with smooth lines and explosive turns.

Women

Angharad John: a multi-talented surfer. Fierce in the water with an almost 'Medena' like competitive hunger. Anghard will carry herself and her fellow team mates to good things. Oh and she longboards too .. see below.


Longboard

Evan Rogers: calm, likeable, humble, generous and an amazing waterman. Evan can rightly claim the waterman title for Wales given his work with the RNLI and his super-human talent on a longboard. Runner-up in the European junior longboard a few moons ago and runner-up at this year's Welsh Nationals.

Women's Longboard

Angharad John: see above. Mutli-talented and a serious cometitor.

Our need is simple. Lets help send this multi-talented team to the Eurosurf 2019 and put Wales in the Euro surf map once again. Please give what you can to support our athletes. They deserve their chance to shine on the international stage.
