Heart of Worcestershire College’s (HoW College) sport student, Blaze L’Enfant, celebrates his wave of success as he claims another victory in flowboarding and becomes a sponsored rider with Jaan Flowboards.

Blaze started flowboarding in 2015 and has since gone on to win numerous titles including the European Junior (under 18’s) Flowboarder at the European Flowboarding Championships in 2017 and runner up in the Men’s Pro-Flowboard category at the European Flowboarding Championships in 2018.

Talking about his success, Blaze said:

“I fell in love with flowboarding on a family cruise a couple of years ago. Getting into such a niche sport hasn’t been easy, especially as there are only five artificial wave centres in the UK. However, I am really proud of how far I have come within the sport and I am honoured to be a sponsored rider with Jaan Flowboards.”

Commenting on his time at the College, Blaze added:

“The College has played a significant part throughout my recent progression in the sport, showing a welcome interest in how flowboarding works and providing me with a great deal of support and encouragement. It can be a big step-up moving from school to a college environment but HoW College tutors have, in my experience, made the whole process easy, straightforward and relaxing.”

Speaking about Blaze’s success, CRQ Leader for Sport and Public Services, Judd Doughty said:

“We’re extremely proud of Blaze and what he has accomplished both inside and outside of college. As a student he is committed and hardworking, which is also evident in his success within flowboarding.”
