The British surf scene hasn’t been the same since 1981, when the first Boardmasters took place; ever since, Boardmasters has become fundamental to it. It started as a small and humble surf competition and in the years that followed it evolved to one of the biggest and most important events on the British Pro surfing calendar.

Boardmasters Festival offers a total of seven categories of surf competitions will be on for all levels and skills, but no worries if surfing is not your area of specialization! Skate and BMX fans can also enjoy the festival, so if you are feeling like watching some of the world’s elite surfers and local groms, take off your shoes and come down to Fistral Beach where the competition will be hosted.
