Morgan Falls Just Short in Newquay

17th November 2010
Morgan Falls Just Short in Newquay

Irish surfer Nicole Morgan made a strong showing at last weekend's Newquay Open, the final stop on this season's UK Pro Surf Tour.

The Belfast native - who now lives in Bundoran, Co Donegal - placed fourth after the two-day event at Fistral Beach, the BBC News site reports.

But it wasn't enough to knock season standout Gwen Spurlock from the top of the points table.

The 19-year-old Welshwoman's fifth-place finish was all that was needed to secure her third British tour title in four years.

But Morgan - who previously won the overall title in 2008 - made a strong challenge to the end, finishing the season just 60 points short of the top spot.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
