Lucy Campbell Christens Korev Championship

14th May 2017 Paul Andrews

Team Korev surfer Lucy Campbell has kicked off the season in style, winning the English National Womens Open Championship in Perranporth.

Lucy, 22, signed a three-year sponsorship deal with Korev Cornish Lager in February to enable her to reach more surfing events around the globe to increase her status and ranking amongst the world’s best female surfers. She has already spent time in South Africa and Spain warming up for this year’s competitions, but winning the national title at the English Surfing event is a real statement of intent for the Woolacombe-based waverider.

Speaking after her hard-fought victory, Lucy said, “It got pretty tough out there towards the end of the competition but fair play to everyone who saw it through. Winning the title is an amazing start to the season, especially in those conditions, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how far I can push myself this year, both here and in the World Surfing League competitions abroad.”

Running across the Bank Holiday weekend, over 29 hours of surfing was completed across two days as the competition was curtailed due to the worsening weather conditions, producing 19 champions from junior categories to seniors and masters. With both men and women, long and short boarders battling it out simultaneously in 5-6ft waves, Lucy won through from a strong crowd to win the Womens’ Open title and now goes on to Mexico to compete in a 6 star Word Qualifying series event. 

Delighted at Lucy’s early success, St Austell Brewery Marketing and Communications Director Jeremy Mitchell, the makers of Korev, commented, “Lucy’s drive and commitment are a sure-fire winning recipe and we’re really thrilled that her hard work training overseas this year is already paying dividends for her. We look forward to helping her achieve her ambitions through the Korev sponsorship.”

As official beer of British surfing, Korev Cornish lager enjoys inclusion throughout English Surf Federation operations as well as being named as supporting sponsor of the Interclub and National Surfing Championships.
