A few of our September students have been asking of the whereabouts of our Master Sebastian Smart.
Seb’s been a busy boy, with a short Surf trip to the highlands of Scotland with Style boarder, Mikey Lay and the Wavelength Magazine crew for an up coming article for the mag.
Then on the way home, Seb stopped of at Bristol to meet up with his sponsor – the VANS Europe Surf team to take on the mighty River Severn Bore ‘Tidal Wave’
For those of you that don’t know:
“The Severn bore is a tidal bore seen on the tidal reaches of the River Severn in south western England. It is formed when the rising tide moves into the funnel-shaped Bristol Channel and Severn Estuary and the surging water forces its way upstream in a series of waves, as far as Gloucester and beyond ”
Seb rode a wave for over a mile long !
Here’s what Seb had to say about the unreal experience
“It was a pretty amazing experience. Not only riding the tidal wave but the people you meet along the way. Its a rare and dangerous thing surfing that bore, so there’s not much time to be pretentious. Its all so pure and exciting”
