Boardmasters Festival in Cornwall

From 7-11 August 2024, along the cliff path from Watergate Bay, you'll find the UK's biggest surf and music festival.

Boardmasters is back for 2024 and bigger than ever. Please find more details online at

Jason Feast surfer competes at Fistral beach

The festival first started as a surf competition in 1981, and with Newquay being home to some of the UK's best waves, the tradition has carried on to 2022. You can find all surf events happening over on Fistral beach.

A shuttle will be running from Watergate Bay to Fistral, so those visiting the main festival, can head over from the campsite to take part in everything going on.

Everyone is welcome to watch the pro's battle it out to win the Boardmasters trophy and to soak up the good vibes. All competitions are free for spectators to watch. 

Competition categories

The Quicksilver Open
The Roxy Open
Men's Longboard pro
Women's Longboard pro
