This year saw 20 competitors from all over, plenty of locals and some influx from Cornwall, London & Berkshire! The waves weren't firing, but were well formed and peeling providing some classic nose rides, and a contestable wave. 4 first round heats, 3 second round heats and a final... well done to our top 3 pictured by Jake Moore!

Michael Winter, a 3 time winner, and getting harder to beat each year! Kudos and welcome to Joe Hornbuckle whom traveled with his Dad Mark from St. Agnes, Cornwall, bags of style, nose rides and commitment to make a CCLJ from afar. Happy Birthday Ben Brown in 3rd.. local legend and great support from the entire Brown Clan as always!!
