After the successful bodyboard coaching weekends at Rob Barber’s Bodyboarding School in May and July they un earthed some top new Brit talent.

The first weekend saw Stephen Hall from Truro rip the place to pieces showing great improvements with tight spins and lip moves. The July course saw British Schools Under 16 and Under 18 champ Bertie Thomson and good friend and drop knee aficionado Liam Benny from St Ives tearing it up, both learning invert airs after sessions at Fistral, Towan and a local, secret wedge. Both weekends were blessed with good swell and the crew of all bodyboarding levels were split into ability level groups and coached on a one to one basis. This autumn sees a packed schedule to make the most of the warm water temperatures and the great forecasted September and October swells.
