The 2017 World Kneeboard Titles. Report by Steve Artis
Somo, a great little surf town in Northern Spain, was descended upon by a horde of kneeboarding
enthusiasts from fourteen nations, all with good intentions, enjoying the moment, making new friends and
renewing old friendships The opening ceremony set the scene for a week of festivities, a high level of surfing,
siesta's, and nightly gatherings featuring great food, beers, wine and storytelling. The language barrier was no barrier;
'Hola', 'muchas gracias', 'si', and a bit of signing was enough. The surf fluctuated under a tidal influence, with a
daily window of opportunity that allowed for excellent surfing. Whilst the Opens set the bar, the top eight age divisions didn't disappoint. Every nation was represented with a good spread of World title's amongst the competing nations. Report continued here...
