Anyone wantng further information please contact Ins Lesley Wheatley (7487)

Lesley is a current member of the PSUK National Team and is just back from Grand Cayman where they played 2 matches
against the National Team winning both matches.

The section offers competition in two disciplines namely boat angling and shore angling;

The boat league is fished over 6 matches with results deciding the teams for the following years regional and national competitions. Teams consist of 4 persons. Results in the regional competition decide qualification to the national competition. Individual results in the nationals may qualify members to represent national teams.

In addition there is a Northern Counties boat competition.

The shore section has a similar league format decided over 8 competitions. Again league placings decide teams for the following years regional and national competitions. Success at individual level at the national competition will qualify members to represent national squads.

In addition the shore section fish a two legged cup match for a memorial trophy, usually in the summer months, as well as knockout competitions.

Congratulations to Lewis Cadden for being selected to represent PSUK

in the European Police Championships in Slovakia.


Northumbria Police Surf Club evolved from three pals on the same shift putting rest days to good use during lockdown 2020, by digging out our surf boards and heading to the beach, along with many others this year. 

The idea of the club started as we found that we came out of the water with a lot less stress and worries than what we went in with. We quickly realised  that there must be other police officers and staff that may already be familiar with sport or want to give it a try. There was a huge number of people who said they already surf or have always thought of trying it from Northern, Central and Southern. We were amazed at the amount of people who wanted to join in and the club was formed. 

To begin with there will be a surf session organised once a month beginning in 2021, but in the busier and sunnier seasons this will likely increase. 

As a brand new club, we are open to ideas and look forward to running a club that best suits everyone. 

We will mostly meet at Longsands Beach, Tynemouth and rentals for wetsuits and surf boards are available from Tynemouth Surf Co which is located on the beach. Funding received to the club will go towards paying for rentals, purchasing both communal boards and wetsuits for member use. There will be trips away to other beaches with the idea of travelling to other force areas to meet up with their surfers.  Sessions with instructors will be arranged for members who want to learn and for those who want to improve their surfing skills.

The club welcomes everyone from total beginners to advanced surfers and the focus is on having fun and de-stressing rather than competing. A decent level of swimming is advised. For any questions please get in touch.
