As some of you may know, the BLU has been given the right to run the British Longboard Championships for 2010 on behalf of the BSA.
The BSA, as the National Governing Body operates National Championships under ISA rules.
The basic requirements for running a National event are:
- All competitors must hold a British Passport
- All competitors must be Full members of the BSA for each event
- For Longboard competitions, all boards must be a minimum of 9' long across the top deck of the board
Please download and read the ISA Rules 2010 version for more detail.
BSA affiliated clubs
There is a misconception that being a member of an affiliated club automatically provides membership of the BSA.
This is not always the case.
Most clubs will provide a tiered club membership, usually one with BSA membership and one without (while providing their own insurance).
If a surfer wishes to take part in National Competitions, and he has taken out club membership and opted to take BSA membership as part of that membership, they must ensure that the club has informed the BSA and passed over the fees in order for membership to be valid in time for a competition.
Proof Of Membership
Prior to all competitions, the BLU/BSA will check all surfers memberships against the BSA listings.
If a surfer is not a member of the BSA and cannot show proof of membership, they will not be allowed to take part in the event unless some sort of joining up process is provided at the event.
This is being explored with the BSA, but cannot be guaranteed at this time.
Late entries on the beach risk the surfer being disqualified from entering the event if they cannot show their BSA membership card on the day.

If you want to see my shots from 2009 full screen, click here.
If you weren’t there then you ought to be ashamed of yourselves it was probably the best one yet and it was great. The band JESTERBONES were fantastic.... loud wasn’t the word.... The food was superb, the raffle was endless and the beer went down well.... Everyone made the free bus up to cook island except Greg and George who obviously can’t tell the time!
As usual there is never enough time to get everything done and enjoy the night with my family and friends so GREG ROBINSON and ASHLEY BRAUNTON have been given the job of organising next years
event at cook island so WATCH OUT.........
A big thanks goes out to `JESTERBONES`, STEVE + LISA from cook island all our sponsors and everyone who donated prizes towards the raffle, and not forgetting everyone who came. I need to say a big thanks to my wife Hayley, Ashley and Lilly who sorted the bus, raffle and me out on the night.... xxxxx.
Greg treated us to a rap which was unforgettable and hilariously funny, not that he remembered much about it the following day...
The hangovers were abundant the next day and for once I was fine and raring for breakfast which cook island put on and shouldn’t be missed if you’re passing. We even had a guest appearance from 007 himself suited and booted of course... or was it really Chris Dyer in fancy dress... smart as...
Well done to all of the league competitors and all the trophy winners of 2009!
Big thanks again to all the clubs sponsors.
