Here is a link to the write up of the Andrew Cotton film event at Tregenna Castle for those that could not make it.
For 2016 the entry fees for the events have been increased. The fees have been held down for a couple of years but they have been raised to reflect the increased costs of judging, other operating costs and the provision of Tee shirts to competitors.
The 2016 entry fees are:
All adult divisions £30
All Junior divisions £15
ISA world Longboard Championship rules on length
ISA Article here.
"All longboards were measured prior to the at the ISA World Longboard Championships at Huanchaco, Peru and a large number were found to be less than the minimum regulation 9' 0". Some boards were borderline along the rocker but many were rejected for the competition up to 2 inches short including one board of Team GB.
ISA ruling: Length is a minimum of 9 feet from the tip of the board in a straight line along its deck.
This year at the WLC, borderline boards were able to be botched to increase the length but it is my understanding, that this will not be repeated at future ISA Longboard events. In order that this doesn't happened to the equipment of British Competitors next season, organisers are going to to measure boards at the coming BLU Valero Classic (just to raise awareness) and before all legs of the BLU Season 2014. It would be helpful for competitors to speak with their shapers to ensure that in future boards are the regulation minimum length."
