PSG clients, the Bridge Family, have enjoyed a recent run of success, adding to their already impressive collective achievements, across a number of competitions.

Family run business Edge Watersports, based in Exmouth, hosted and organised the Edge Race Cup for the fifth year running this June. The event, which is recognised as part of the National Kite Racing Tour, attracted huge support and participation from across the region.

Ollie, 15, the eldest of the Bridge boys, proved why he’s the youth World Champion with straight wins resulting in him being crowned champion of the Edge Race Cup. Described as being ”in a league of his own”, Ollie secured the title in home waters with 10 from 10 wins during the event.

Following Ollie’s success, his younger brothers also demonstrated the impressive talent which runs in the family, this time a little further from home. The PKRA Kiteboarding Junior Freestyle World Championships took place last weekend (6-7 July) in Sant Pere Pescador, Spain. 43 competitors from 17 countries representing the best junior freestyle kiteboarders in the world attended to battle it out for title of Youth World Champion. It was the youngest of the Bridge brothers, Tom, however, who took home the title, with brother Guy in a close second place.
