We are all booked up and can’t wait – who is all going to be there??
Boardmasters Festival is not all about the music. Since 1981 we have been an integral part of the British surf scene. From humble beginnings as a small surf competition, we are now proud to present one of the biggest events on the professional British surfing calendar; not to mention the music festival. Join us in the lazy summer sun and celebrate the surfing lifestyle! All professional surfing events are held Fistral Beach and best of all, they’re free for all spectators.
Our champions of surf in 2015 were Hodei Collazo (Men’s Open), Peony Knight (Womens Open), Edouard Delpero (Longboard), Alice Lemoigne (Longboard) and Justine Mauvin (Juniors). This year there are four categories of surf comps, conpetitors will be confirmed soon!
