Comments: 4

We all arrived in Naples on 19th October and settled into the hotel, along with the rest of the England Team, ready for the weigh in and coaches/ umpire meetings scheduled for the 20th. After all the formalities those close to their weight breathed a sigh of relief and the rest of us went in search of a supermarket or shop to buy the necessary water, chocolate etc for the next few days !!
After that it was time to put some light practice in just to keep it all fresh in the minds, so all hands on deck to find a flat clear area .
The coaches and umpires went in the evening over to another hotel for the meeting and draws for the tournament. There were 17 countries in attendance so we knew it was going to be a tough competition.

The first day of the tournament dawned and I think Mr Richards and myself were more nervous than the competitors as all six of the region 4 competitors came from our St Austell Club , and they were all in the teams events as well !!

I don''t know why we were nervous as they were amazing , in total Region 4 had 26 medals overall from 6 competitors, we were over the moon. Sam managed to make us all laugh and worry at the same time when he competed at the special techniques, he leapt up touched the board, landed properly , the board then dropped from the holder and he ended up with 4 stitches in his head !!! Hence the dressing on his head for most of the photos.
