Picture 50

The Boardmasters is held in Cornwall in the South West of England each year and is he biggest event on the British Surf circuit. Since it’s inception to the surfing competition circuit in 1981 it’s grown each year and in 2014 not only does it include surfing, like the US Open it’s an epic festival with Skate, BMX and loads of music and stalls – It is the middle of Summer after all, and festivals are what we like to do on the long, hot days.

Held on August 6th – 10th this year, the event hosts mens and women’s divisions as well as grommets as well it provides a surfing showcase of the (and international) finest British and international pros and amateurs with an Air Show included in the line up, an opportunity for the competitors to get their “fins out” and put on a display of their high-flying skills.

The SunGod Women’s Open will host many of the local surfer girls. We’ll look forward to seeing them at their best  and what they’ve got to show off in their countries biggest event.

Fistral beach is a beach break with mostly rights and shows it’s best at low tide with big, wide banks. Magic Seaweed is predicting 1-2 foot swell with on-shore winds for the first 3 days of competition until a change on Sunday will bring an increase to 3-5 foot swell until Wednesday.
