The UK Pro Surf Tour came to Saltburn this weekend and fortunately the surf, the weather and the standard of surfing all made for a great weekend of competition surfing on this leg of the tour. Newquay’s Russell Winter eventually took the men’s title with Keshia Eyre originally from Manchester but who now who lives in Portugal taking the top slot for the women.
From here the tour now heads north to Thurso in Scotland before dropping back down in a few weeks to Tynemouth.
In between trying to take advantage of the surf and grabbing a few quick sessions myself I shot a few pictures during the competition…..
