Boardmasters is one of our favourite events of the whole year. You’ve got the music, the atmosphere, the location and also the extra addition of a WSL surf competition. What more could you possibly ask for?
“Surfing is like the mafia. Once you’re in, you’re in. There’s no getting out” – Kelly Slater
Since 1981 Boardmasters has been the biggest international surf contest and festival in the UK and we think this is what makes Boardmasters truly special.
At a lot of festivals in the UK you would never leave the actual festival sight which means a lot of lying around in the afternoons and the focus is on the music, however, here you have the perfect opportunity to get yourself down to the beach and take advantage of the events going on down there. There is a shuttle bus or you can drive but either way it is an absolute must do, especially if you’re not from Devon or Cornwall.
The surf competition is great to watch, however Boardmasters isnt just for pros and there are plenty of opportunities to get into the water, maybe with some surf lessons? There is even an official Boardmasters surf school.
