“This relationship with POSCA is something Surfing GB is very keen to flourish and develop as we launch at the British Nationals and move through 2013. With the sport of surfing struggling for support it’s great to see such a prestigious event backed by a fantastic brand and we are very grateful to POSCA for their commitment to crowning the best of British surfing.” – Nigel Semmens
“It’s fantastic to be given the opportunity to showcase British surfing talent in such a format – building on the strength and progress of the achievements over the past year, working together with UKPSA and helping to grow the sport to where it should be. Bringing such a strong brand into a partnership with the organisation is a great success story.” Matt Knight.
