Raife Gaskell Welsh Longboard Champion 2017

Over the bank holiday weekend the Welsh Surfing Federation hosted the Billabong MiPost Welsh Nationals 2017 at Freshwater West. Our man Raife Gaskell was there representing tafia.co.uk in some of the most solid waves seen at the event for a few years. Raife came away Welsh Champion in the Mens Longboard Division!

A massive effort from the Pemb's boy, managing to find time for a surf whilst in his final year of qualifying to become a paramedic! Congratulations boyo! Your hard work is paying off!

Well done to everyone else who entered the event. It's great to see the standard of surfing in Wales grow year on year. With such a good group of Groms surfing at such a high level, anything is possible for the future of Welsh surfing!
