Flaming June ? Let's hope so ! The Atlantic warming up and so is Croyde Surf Clubs schedule of events.
The Monday night Grom Club is now up and running , meet at Downend Car Park 6pm .Check the website for updates due to swell , weather , or Armageddon .
Our contest season started off last month with The Al Rannochan Memorial . The first contest of the year is dedicated to former chairman of CSC Al Rannochan . Passionate about surfing , Al was a renegade spirit and in his latter days would cruise the lanes of the shire on his "Harley". The contest trophy features a Harley Davidson above the list of "Open" winners , this year topped by Beau Bromham.

Thanks to all who competed , and to everyone who helped out , not to mention Blue Groove for the after event party and food , Downend Car Park for the venue and St Austell Brewery for the bottle of JD .
A special thanks to all who joined us to scatter the ashes of Duncan Sinclair . The contest was halted for a paddle out , with friends and family lining the headland. Kind words from Keith West , uncompromising support from Martin "Masher" Ward , kind thoughts and respect from all ! Sending Duncan off to sea via the line up he loved...
It was great to see the surf community coming to remember these two fine fellows . I'm sure they would both have been envious of the level of surfing and Stoke !
Just shows that Lat 51.13 long -4.24 is hallowed to some...
