This weekend just gone saw the 2nd edition of the Girls 10 Board challenge go down at Godrevy, hosted by the National Trust. The idea of the contest is both simple and brilliant; there are 10 surfboards available, each different from the next in length, shape, design and, often, construction and before each heat the competitors have their name drawn out of a hat to match them up with a numbered surfboard. Each surfboard has a handicap which the surfer’s wave score is calibrated against so that each ride is judged on it’s individual merits, considering surfer and equipment.
