Luis Eyre wins first Marley’s Mellow Mood Pro Junior Surf Tour Event
Local surfers put up strong showing
Luis Eyre (Portugal) last year’s tour champion won the first event on the Marley’s Mellow Mood UKPSA Pro Junior Tour at Fistral Beach last weekend. Luis dominated the final forcing his fellow competitors into a combination situation, meaning they would require two better waves if they wished to beat him. Second place went to Jobe Harriss (Bude), third place went to British Team member Luke Dillon (Newquay) and fourth place to Miles Lee Hargreaves (Bournemouth)
In the Under 16 Boys Dale Foster (Newquay) put on a faultless performance to take the title. Runner up went to Angus Scotney (Newquay), third place was taken by Taz Knight (Croyde) and fourth place went to last year’s Under 12 Champion Liam Murray Strout (Port Isaac)
In the Parking Eye Sundown Team Challenge team AVIT (Russell Winter, Johnny Fryer, Lewis Clinton & Alan Stokes) took the title and £1,000 prize money, winning the first ever UK Pro Surf Tour Team event.
John Mulvey - Brand Manager - Marley’s Mellow Mood comments on the partnership. ‘At Marley’s Mellow Mood we’re delighted to once again support the UK Pro Surf Tour and in particular, young British surfers. We feel the Pro Junior tour presents an excellent platform for young surfers to live the life they love through a sport and lifestyle that resonates really well with the values at the heart of Marley’s Mellow Mood.’
