Tess Surfs to Success at National Championships

Mr Woolcock

Over the summer I took part in the Surf Life Saving GB National Championships.  I wasn’t the only one from Penpol there either, Zara was there too!

I did the paddle board race and came third because of a really good wave!  I also came fifth in the swim and I came fifth in the board relay.  In the sprint I got into the semi finals and in the sprint relay I came fourth.

Because of all the people competing there were two big stages, one for board and one for swim, and we’d swap between the arenas.  In between there was loads of really good music. 

My favourite part of the whole day was my dad buying me a new board to celebrate coming third – it’s pink with stars.
