Sam Lamiroy wins 2007 UK Pro Surf Tour

Sam Lamiroy wins 2007 UK Pro Surf Tour at the Gul Newquay Open, on Fistral Beach last weekend, 10/11 November.

Sam defeated Llewellyn Whittaker by only 12points, the narrowest margin for victory in tour history. The title on the final day of the Gul Newquay Open could have gone either way, but because of Sam’s marginal lead going into the final event on the tour he had the advantage and used all his experience to achieve his goal.

This is the second time Sam has won the tour title. He has proved he has not lost any of his skill in an ever increasing competitive field of surfers that compete on the tour from all over the world.

Gwen Spurlock from Swansea won the Women’s division to add to the U16 Girls Grommet Title that she also won earlier in the day.

Jayce Robinson of St Ives won the Pro Junior Title, Alex Baker of Croyde won the U16 Boys from a very strong field of up and coming surfers.

However one of the future stars of surfing Harry Timson (Newquay) retained his Under 12 Open title by winning all 5 of the competitions he entered this year.

The UK PST would like to thank 2007 Tour sponsors, Skinners Brewery, G Shock and Relentless for all their support and assistance throughout the year and the individual title sponsors for each of the 8 tour events. Also to all the staff and competitors who have all come together to make 2007 a very successful year.

The tour will now be on a break until Easter 08 when the first event will be the Saltrock Open in Croyde.
